Created by:

In this article, we would like to show you escape characters and how to insert them to the string in Python.

Quick solution:

text = "Hello\tWorld!"

print(text)  # Hello	World!


Practical example

In this example, we escape double quotation marks to create a quote inside the text string.

text = "\"This is my quote.\""

print(text)  # "This is my quote."


"This is my quote."
