Keyboards do not type in any language, it types its position on the keyboard. To make an english keyboard type in another language change the keyboard language in Windows.

I agree with Gabriel, just grab an image of the keyboard distribution of the language you have chosen in windos or Mac, so you have a crossreference  between the key and the character that shows on the screen.

so you are recommending to get a 'hebrew' keyboard? you are talking about a physical keyboard or virtual?

About the image of the keyboard, I'm talking about getting a print out of the key distribution of the keyboard you have selected so you can predict the character that will show on the screen
 If you press q on an english keyboard but you have instructed Windows to use a hebrew keyboard you will getHebrew.png, if you have instructed to use the tamil keyboard you'll get Tamil.png To have an idea of wich character you'll get you need a printout of the keyboard you are emulating
