Can I use an English Apple Keyboard (with numeric pad / non-wireless) with a German Mac Book Pro?

Hello,

I´ve purchased my Mac Book Pro in Germany 18 months ago, so the built-in keyboard is German. I have purchased now an English Keyboard but some letters are inverted (for example "y" and "z")... question is: can I use an English Apple Keyboard (with numeric pad / non-wireless) with a German Mac Book Pro?...

thanks for your help.

regards

Andre

    Open:
    -System Preferences/Language & Text
    -Input Sources tab
    -enable (checkbox) for U.S. (or which ever English USB keyboard you are using)
    -maybe keep German enabled for when you don't have the USB keyboard

    If you want the entire system to be in English,
    -Language tab
    -select English

    -Close System Preferences
