Is there any program who can emulate certain keystrokes and "transforms into other"?

For example, if I press Shift + K, I want the computer to interpret it as Alt + A (just an example).

You can do that and more with AutoHotkey. You can create hotkeys and remap keys and buttons on your keyboard.

Hmm, I knew that you could have a key perform something else, but I didn’t expect that you could actually remap it so that the original key is still available; for example, you can swap a & b such that pressing ‘a’ gives ‘b’ and vice-versa: a::b & b::a. (I do still wonder if it creates a cyclic loop though, eg void a(){b();} void b(){a();}.) – Synetech Sep 14 '11 at 20:24
    
Great. I knew about AutoHOtKey but didn´t know he could do that. Many thanks. – Popo Sep 14 '11 at 20:58
    
Could you give some examples? I want to Shift+UP Arrow to be transformed into NUMPAD8 for example – Popo Sep 14 '11 at 21:07
    
I am not proficient in Autohotkey and I suggest you ask another question for your above example with autohotkey tag. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Sep 14 '11 at 21:17
