  • I have edited the question to change layout to localization. If that's not what you are seeking, please feel free to revert the edit. – Nimesh Neema Aug 1 '18 at 7:05

  • There's a difference between keyboard layout and localization. The one which I posted in the answer (referenced from the Apple support document) is the only one which matches with localization of your MacBook's keyboard. However the sample illustration shows AZERTY layout instead of QWERTY. Can you update the question to specify the model of your MacBook Pro? – Nimesh Neema Aug 1 '18 at 7:14

  • It looks like some kind of hybrid; it's a French layout but with what looks like a standard UK or International English qwerty inset. The letters match qwerty, including where the azerty layout has to 'move' keys elsewhere. – Tetsujin Aug 1 '18 at 7:29

It very closely resembles French keyboard localization as per Apple support document, How to identify keyboard localizations.

The keyboard has French localization. The keys have been manually swapped to change the layout.

However, the layout on your keyboard is QWERTY while Apple support document illustrates AZERTY layout.

As mentioned by Tetsujin:

It looks like some kind of hybrid; it's a French layout but with what looks like a standard UK or International English qwerty inset. The letters match qwerty, including where the azerty layout has to 'move' keys elsewhere

In order to have output match the keys, you could create a custom layout with Ukelele or Karabiner.

  • But sir my keyboard layout is still different some keys are different? – Yousaf Ashraf Aug 1 '18 at 6:58

    @Tetsujin Thanks for the info. I shared a link to this question with a couple natives from France. Got them puzzled too. It appears French locale keyboards doesn't come with QWERTY layout. – Nimesh Neema Aug 1 '18 at 8:01
  • Well, French is spoken across a significant area of Africa - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… - maybe from one of those?? – Tetsujin Aug 1 '18 at 8:07
