Swap upper case with International keyboard to case with US keyboard

My macbook pro early 2011 - A1278 has a broken keyboard due to liquid damage. I want to replace the upper case with keyboard but I can only find upper cases with a US keyboard (horizontal ‘enter’ key) whereas my current macbook has the EN International keyboard layout (vertical ‘enter’ + extra key between ‘z’ and ‘left shift’). Is it still possible to do this replacement and have the macbook recognise the different layout? Possibly through new keyboard setup or any other software solution? Or are there hardware/ connector differences between the 2 layouts as well making the replacement impossible?

Sure you can replace the full uppercase with the UK version (ISO keyboard) Here’s the needed part Unibody MacBook Pro 13" Top Case & UK keyboard (Early 2011) and here’s the guide you’ll need to follow MacBook Pro 13" Unibody Early 2011 Upper Case Replacement You may need to replace the trackpad as well.

As far as getting the other keyboard to work you’ll need to use an external keyboard (USB or Bluetooth) to alter the keyboard driver within the Keyboard control panel.

Thanks for your quick reply. I will use this guide when I get the parts, however the part that you linked in your answer is a refurbished part, and I would like to invest in a new replacement part which costs just a little more than this one. My question is more about the macbook recognising a different keyboard layout if the replacement is different from the original (US / International).

"As far as getting the other keyboard to work you’ll need to use an external keyboard (USB or Bluetooth) to alter the keyboard driver within the Keyboard control panel." Its that simple!

You do need the correct part, the part is no longer being made so getting a new one will be very difficult!

I’ve done keyboard replacement several times going both from English to International and vise versa with no problems.

Great! Did the OS recognise the different layout by itself or did you have to run the keyboard setup/ third party software for it to recognise it?

The ones I did recognized the keyboards.
