The kkbswitch package in K/Ubuntu "displays an icon in the system tray that indicates which layout is currently active and enables you to switch layouts by clicking the icon or by selecting from the menu. It works with all desktop environments.

"Features include: - Configurable icons for the keyboard layouts. - The "toggle mode" to toggle between the two most recently-used keyboard layouts. - Choose to use a global layout or per-application or per-window layouts. - Configurable keyboard shortcuts."

You don't indicate whether you use KDE 3 or 4 or which distribution you use. I am using Kubuntu/KDE 3. I don't know if it is available in KDE 4.
