AZERTY layout is used in France and Belgium. It differs from QWERTY, mostly by swapping

Just to notice : all words in French with a Z have a A or a E next to the Z. Moreover, you can't say โ€œAlso consider the swapping of Z (0.136%) and W (0.114%). Their frequency of use is almost the sameโ€. It's not true at all. Z is at the end of almost half of the french verbs when they are used with the โ€œyouโ€ subject.
