Marcus has a script (in perl I think) that does that, just check is
home dir at alpha.gnu.org; it has the script and also a config file
set for german, change that one according to your keymap and run the
script. You should have no problems since you do not need dead keys or
special fonts; I also had problems with two keys in the bottom left,
and that even with a portuguese keyboarf (strangely the german and
portuguese keymaps are the basicaly the same in non alphanumeric
chars, like /()[]+* etc.)

Good luck,
