Separate keyboard and interface language settings?

I am using all apps in English, because its easier to follow along in various online tutorials. However having a german keyboard layout at the same time, causes me a lot of trouble. All shortcuts are wrongly listed in Photoshop, Lightroom and Premiere Pro and therefore I can't use them.

For Premiere Pro I found a fix by copying the Keyboard Shortcut File (*.kys) from the German into the English folder. So when the language is English I can use the shortcuts made for the German layout. I cannot imagine, that I am the only one with that problem. I suppose I am missing something, an addtitional way to change keyboard language settings separately. My search attempts were not sucessful, because there are to many other threads about changing language settings and keyboard shortcuts.

Hope someone might help me.

Sincerely  yours,

Ben

I don't want to change every second shortcut in every Adobe CC program. I dont mind the default shortcuts. I just want to be able to use them. I'm not quite sure if you understood my problem, kglad.

I need German keyboard shortcuts, but English interface language.

Every shortcut using special symbols like ' { } \ / ( ) etc. is not usable, because of my keyboard layout.

Because I would have to change every single one manually. I use Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Lightroom, Acrobat, Bridge and Media Encoder on a regular basis. I would spend a couple of days changing all of them.

A reliable way to load German presets as custom keyboard set would work perfectly fine. But it is a little bit different in every program.

Im not able to automate the process by myself. I came up with this solution for Premiere Pro: screen2.PNGscreen3.PNG

By copying keyboard shortcut from de_DE to en_US. (Backing up the original file of course). It works similarly for Photoshop.

I feel your pain. Same situation here with my italian keyboard. In some cases I solved it just adding english language pack to windows 10 and switch to it while using Adobe softwares. But in some other cases (like moving from one frame to the next or previous, in photoshop video layer does not work for me even with "Enable Timeline Shortcut Keys" on).

cheers

There are a lot of threads about this issue. I've wanted this feature for 15 years.

 

There should be two separate language settings in Adobe apps: One for the interface language, and one for the keyboard settings/shortcuts.
