If you just want to print out references, there are lots of places that you can download from. Here, for instance is a German keyboard- http://www.datacal.com/dce/catalog/german-keyboards_l.htm The site also has the shift and alt references.

I remember finding and purchasing a German keyboard once for a client. I remember it being a fairly simple Google search and I found a retailer locally that had one. Stickers to change the keyboards have also been around since...well keyboards. I used this method on a client who was too cheap to buy a Dvorak keyboard, but wanted to learn Dvorak.
