I installed language for kde using synaptic. In your case kde-i18n-Hebrew .
Then, I went to Control Center / Regional & Accessibility
Then Country / Region & Language / Add Language ....
Then Keyboard Layout
[X] Enable keyboard layouts
Select the other keyboard layout.

I use Alt Ctrl k to switch to the other language in bash.

an applet but not language.

There probably is but I have not found it yet. You may have some luck googling for
linux locale switching or something along that line.
