Well, I hope I got you right on this ... you (or the person you are
trying to help) can easily try it out yourself by simply switching your
system language to (British) English and having a look at the keyboard
layout window. Cmd-{ then is mapped to Shift-ü on a German keyboard,
while Cmd-} will be right next to it at Shift-+ . You can test it right
away, no need to reboot your Mac.

Hope this helps...
