Hi Bence,

Take a look at the file
Mathematica\[version_number]\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\Windows\KeyEventTranslations.tr

(The path may be a bit different for other operating systems.)

I am mostly happy with the editor shortcuts, I just use this to remap 
CTRL-[ to \[LeftDoubleBracket] etc.

AFAIK the format of this file is not documented (but pretty 
self-explanatory), so be careful, and back it up before you make any 
modifications. If you keep the backup in the same directory, make sure 
that its extension is NOT .tr, otherwise your modifications may not take 
effect.
