At the begin of a campaign you could enter your name.

I tried to use german letters in the name.
I produced one crash and many very interesting results.
I entered P followed from the letter Ü (its at the german keyboard right from p). Each time I type Ü the "name" changes.

I had (it is random)
f War
in na
engi
ging
after the P. It Looks like parts of strings.what
Also look at the pic below.
Once the border of the Play button was removed.

Could someone from other countries check names with language specific letters?

Confirmed that accented characters obtained through alt gr don't work. (e.g alt gr +a to get á)

I think, If the program dont show such letters,it is okay.
It would be a problem, if it crashes after such an Input or something strange happens.

I believe the only officially supported language for the moment is British English.

Agreed.
But the program should not crash, if I type "Ü". (once at about 25 tries)

Do not suffer. The game does not fully support UTF-8 encoding.
At present, only 2 files in the game support this encoding. This "strings" in the briefing and date.
Rudankort aware of this problem. It will be solved in time creating localizations of the game. Until then only have to use the English keyboard layout.

Thanks - we need to check those accented characters. Also Japanese and Russian. We hadn't thought of that!
