Windows 7: I changed my keyboard language - how?

I changed my keyboard language - how?

I use shortcuts and hotkeys whenever I can.
But sometimes I make a mistake somewhere and the application I'm using switches the languages, from German keyboard layout to the English layout (only the current application, not the entire OS).
I have no idea which key combination causes this and how I can get the default settings back...?

Go to Region and Language in the Control Panel, you should be able to change in there.

Thanks.
But this dialogue gives me the correct settings. It's only the application that's playing crazy...
Guess I have to re-launch it, wanted to avoid that.

The key combination ist [CTRL]+[SHIFT]. You get the default settings back by pressing [CTRL]+[SHIFT] again.
