Yes you can, A1502 late 2013-2015 keyboards are compatible with each other. Just make sure the layout is the same. For example, UK and Italian keyboards will work as replacements, since the enter key is the same shape. Japanese and US layouts will not fit, since the shape of the enter key is different.

Thank you very much.

Well the layout came with the laptop is german. There is a lot of german keyboards available. However, where can I find a combined atypical keyboard? For example, Japanese or Arabic keyboards can come combined with English keys. But where can I find second-language keyboards combined with german instead of english?Is it possible?


If you mean for example a Japanese-German keyboard, I don't think that exists. You can check here though, it lists all of the layouts available for MacBooks

One solution would be to use a German-English skin. It would also help protect you from spills :
