thanks in advance for your help.
I have a Thinkpad T570 with a UK keyboard, I would like to swap it with a french one.
I did it for many Thinkpad, but I cannot find any french keyboard for this model ... is there any way to find this keyboard? or is there a model of Thinkpad compatible with the T570 keyboard ?

There are two vendors and four french keyboards available for your T570:
- FRU: 01EN939, Tachi NBL KBD,FR,CHY.
- FRU: 01ER552, Tachi BL KBD,FR,CHY.
- FRU: 01ER511, Tachi NBL KBD,FR,LTN.
- FRU: 01ER593, Tachi BL KBD,FR,LTN.
CHY means Chicony and LTN - LiteON.
NBL stands for non backlit and BL - backlit.
If you ask me, which one vendor will be better, then in the past LiteON made pretty good keyboards and Chicony one of worst in comparison to other. I have seen, that LiteON's keyboards are available on eBay.
Keyboards for T570 are allowed to be replaced by customer, so you'll not lose warranty after replacing keyboard (obliviously, if you don't damage something in the process).
