Key maps

I am connecting to AIX machine and trying to write some Assian language. But I can not switch/togel the keyboard layer to these languages. I think the problem is that I do not have there laguage keyboards. I tried to see the keyboard maps and map for assign the key F1 to one of the keys that I do not have in my keyboard. It worked. My

Question is, are there any keyboard maps that maps the keys in the Assian keyboards to some keys in the English keyboard?
If not why u do not make some keymaps for testing perboses.

Thanks :)
