Changing Kindle Keyboard Language

I have received a Kindle keyboard as a gift, however it is in Chinese. I do not speak chinese, and I can't figure out how to change the language.. Google only tells me how to change the language for Kindle PC software. Is it even possible?

I think it's become obvious that you should contact Kindle Customer Service.

The Kindle Keyboard supports Korean Hangul and Hanja characters in ebooks without any modification, however, the firmware doesn't offer IMEs for Asian languages.
I.e. you can read Korean books, but you cannot search for Korean words or use the instant dictionary lookup, because you cannot enter Korean characters.
