The underlying dictionaries Plover uses can be changed: https://github.com/openstenoproject/plover/wiki/Dictionary-F...

So if you want to optimize for typing another language, you can swap in corresponding dictionaries and type away. There's only the slight problem that there might not yet exist any for your language...

It's not that easy, since mnemonic key labels (the actual assignment from keys to "letters") might change depending on the overall system. Some stenotyping systems may even use subtly-different keyboard designs, that wouldn't match the stenotype keyboards Open Steno Project was designed to work with.

Hm, I'm sure there is one for German. I wish the project would aim to provide an international solution
