Post Kindle 3 language support issues

Hello.
I just purchased an "international" Kindle 3 and investigate the level of language support they offer for the languages they claim to support.
I want to classify the level of support for each language (English, German, French, Spanish, and other Latin character based languages, Cyrillic letter based languages like Russian, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Chinese) from "perfect" to "poor" and make a wish list of enhancements to be submitted to the Kindles development team.
I already found a lot of issues. For example, Russian and Greek does not correctly display Title and Author names in the Home screen. Also there are issues with special letters and problems in the search functions. Fonts also might be an issue.
Can anyone contribute to issues in languages I don't know (Russian, Greek, Japanese, Korean and Chinese)?
Thank you

Good to have your company, Myomeriko. You're likely to get a quicker and more expert response if you were to post your specific problem in the Kindle-dedicated sub forum here. Happy Kindling and best wishes. Neil
