Translating keyboard layout

Hello. I need help translating keyboard layouts for my new keyboard module in ConsolePort.
The only languages I have so far are Swedish and English.
This is what it looks like:

  • A language table contains 8 sets of 4 buttons, each having 4 strings inside.
  • To swap the character sets, the user holds down L1 or L2 or L1 and L2 together.
  • The keyboard module defaults to the second string.
  • The sets are rendered clockwise.
  • Inside a set, the rendering order is counterclockwise.
This is what the table for English looks like:

Lua Code:
  1. -- Lua format
  2. Language.English = {
  3.     [1] = {
  4.         {"A", "a", "1", "/s"},
  5.         {"B", "b", "2", "/p"},
  6.         {"C", "c", "3", "/i"},
  7.         {"D", "d", "4", "/g"},
  8.     },
  9.     [2] = {
  10.         {"E", "e", "5", "/y"},
  11.         {"F", "f", "6", "/w"},
  12.         {"G", "g", "7", "/e"},
  13.         {"H", "h", "8", "/r"},
  14.     },
  15.     [3] = {
  16.         {"I", "i", "9", ""},
  17.         {"J", "j", "<", "^"},
  18.         {"K", "k", "0", "`"},
  19.         {"L", "l", ">", ""},
  20.     },
  21.     [4] = {
  22.         {"M", "m", "@", ""},
  23.         {"N", "n", "&", "#"},
  24.         {"O", "o", "$", "€"},
  25.         {"P", "p", "%", ""},
  26.     },
  27.     [5] = {
  28.         {"Q", "q", "/", ""},
  29.         {"R", "r", "(", "["},
  30.         {"S", "s", "\\", "\|"},
  31.         {"T", "t", ")", "]"},
  32.     },
  33.     [6] = {
  34.         {"U", "u", "+", ""},
  35.         {"V", "v", "*", "{"},
  36.         {"W", "w", "=", ""},
  37.         {"X", "x", "/", "}"},
  38.     },
  39.     [7] = {
  40.         {"Y", "y", "{rt1}", "{rt1}"},
  41.         {"Z", "z", "{rt2}", "{rt2}"},
  42.         {"\"", "'", "{rt3}", "{rt3}"},
  43.         {"_", "-", "{rt4}", "{rt4}"},
  44.     },
  45.     [8] = {
  46.         {"!", "!", "{rt5}", "{rt5}"},
  47.         {":", ".", "{rt6}", "{rt6}"},
  48.         {":", ",", "{rt7}", "{rt7}"},
