Your best bet is to get a keyboard skin placing across your current keys HRH Taiwanese Keyboard Cover Skin,Chinese Silicone Keyboard Cover Protector for MacBook New Pro 16 inch Model A2141 (2019 Release)&Pro 13 inch Model A2289/A2251(2020 Release) USA Version make sure you get the thinnest version possible and you don’t want to leave it on the system with the lid closed.

Otherwise you’ll need to replace the entire uppercase about $800 USD

Hi Dan, I know there are such a lot of silicone skins, but I need physical keys. I found some layout such as english, german, turkish, spanish etc, but I need chinese version and it's very hard to find them.

@domenicociamarra - Apple doesn't offer the keycaps for the butterfly keys. So your only option is replacing the full uppercase. Some recyclers like TheBookYard in the UK sell recovered parts. But Chinese keyboards are rare outside of Taiwan or mainland China

Why is the skin not workable?

My macbook pro comes from Taiwan, but I'm italian. It's affected by the key's issue, so in order to don't avoid the 4 year recovery program, i need to restore the older chinese layout.

OK this is confusing!

You bought (got) a Chinese system, brought it home to Italy, switched out the keys to a Roman set and now your keyboard needs to be replaced as its failing but you can't as the S/N will alert Apple it was modified so it won't be covered under the extended warrant program.

Sadly you lost the original keycaps! So you need to put them back to get the keyboard replaced.

Is that what we have here?

Somehow you'll need to find someone in China/Taiwan who can get them as that's the only source.
