Generally, the idea is to enable layout (Xkb group) per window and to 
reset layout to English if active window is Emacs. I have not tried 
recipes with managing Xkb group from emacs itself, e.g.
https://github.com/lislon/emacs-switch-lang
https://github.com/Mihara/kbd-indicator.el

Another approach it to set global hotkey and if Emacs is focused, send 
some special key event that is bound to switching of input method. I 
have some links but the pages are not in English. Personally, I have not 
fully polished my setup, however it works with some limitations. I 
started from bash script calling xdotool, xvkbd, and xprop. Then I 
realized that C code is not dramatically longer but it allows to avoid 
struggling with limitations of such tools.

Tim Cross suggested me to raise the question concerning keymaps in 
emacs-devel once more, but I still do not feel that I am ready to 
discussion of technical aspects (e.g. hotkey handling in applications 
that fixed similar issues several years ago)
