German or international keyboard layout for programming?

German or international keyboard layout for programming?

Hey guys, I am buying a new machine soon and am wondering if I should switch to an international keyboard layout. Right now I am working on a german layout, which is convenient for communication with german customers because of the ä ö ü keys, which are very frequent in the german language. The downside is that symbols are harder to reach (you have to use CRTL and SHIFT). The alternative would be using an international layout and switch to german localization (through shortcut) when communicating with german customers. What's your take on this?
