The problem of the displaying characters on a computer is one of the issues to be considered early. Encoding characters, designing fonts, building typing tool to display the characters on the screen is indispensable in the text typing. With the problems relating to text typing and the restrictions of ethnic typing tools so far, the paper proposes a solution using Unicode in encoding the Vietnamese minority languages, applying for the Ede Language from that we can type the ethnic language text in multilingual environment using Unicode fonts and the common Vietnamese typing tool such as Vietkey, Unikey, etc. Based on the results of using Unicode in encoding Ede language, we continue to expand for solving problems of text typing on computers with any ethnic language that has the Latin letters. This paper will also be the basis for our proposal to the competent authorities who unity the using Unicode fonts in the ethnic language text in general and Ede text in particular.
