Thanks, now it works!  I tested it with single keys in Dired and Info
and it translates all single keys and runs commands bound to them.

The only case where it still doesn't work is `view-mode'.

For example, on Greek keyboards `;' corresponds to `q',
so it's easier to test with:

  (define-key function-key-map [?;] [?q])

Now typing `;' in Info quits it by running `Info-exit',
typing `;' in Dired quits it by running `quit-window'.

But typing `;' in View mode does nothing, it doesn't run `View-quit'.

`C-h k ;' in View mode says:

  ; runs the command self-insert-command

whereas in other modes (e.g. Dired and Help mode) it says:

  q (translated from ;) runs the command quit-window

as expected.
