    You might have problems with the abbreviation. For example I tried Albanian as it has un unusual combination of letters for the abbreviation - SQI. This string doesn't exist in the registry. My guess is the abbreviation is hard coded (as SQI is the ISO 639 code for Albanian apparently Language Culture Names, Codes, and ISO Values - RAD Studio)

    Anyway good luck - perhaps it is possible but I don't know how...

    I couldn't find either anything related to abbreviations or text below language name (ie.e "US keyboard).
    I would love to change those two.

    Thanks for help so far.
