Defining the question and exclamation mark as text shortcuts?

Is it possible to define the question and exclamation mark as text shortcuts? E.g. to have non-breaking spaces inserted before them while typing?

Do the Dutch put these spaces? I never saw this. 


Couldn't the handje (nice, I like this) and the bullet be better and faster done by KM? For the bullet there is a Mac-specific shortcut (here, as you know already).


Another tool™ (memoQ) switches automatically to the insertion of non-breaking spaces before exclamation marks, different quotation marks etc. when the target language changes (for me very handy when having DE-CH docs, although these marks are hard-coded on Mac keyboards anyway).

Nope, we don't have this silly habit from the typewriter age. I was trying to help here:

Your German text with special characters is very funny, alas these don't work on my specific keyboard layout.


Yes, Keyboard Maestro or AutoHotkey would be handy.
