On Windows, you can always use Keyman and Keyman Developer to create very flexible input methods that work across pretty much any app, FWIW. Both of these are available free these days at least in basic editions (<> and<>). Just providing another alternative.

One needs a good UTF-8 text editor as well.

Emacs is one possibility, of course.

If you're prepared to cut and paste, it's easy to extend it own

FWIW, I do that a lot, because the number of convenient input methods in Emacs far outnumbers what I have on MS-Windows.  For example, if I have to type Russian with no Russian keyboard available, the cyrillic-translit input method is a life savior.
