Hello Chris,

unfortunately it is not so easy because replacing the keyboard is like replacing the upper case!

MacBook Air 13" Mid 2012 Upper Case Replacement - Use this guide to replace the upper case, including the backlit keyboard.

For information, i'm french and I have a friend that bought a US macbook pro but wanted a french AZERTY layout. If you buy a brand new one, the tip is to order the devise directly at the online apple store and to ask for the free option Canadian keyboard. Canadian keyboard are also azerty! I don't know for German layout...
