locale or other - can't write in program window

Hi again. Maybe today I am the man post the most treads in newbie section .... but I have one more question.

I have a diction(english-bulgarian-english) program which have only windows version and I installed it in my slackware trough wine. The problem is that I can't write a word in bulgarian into it. When in english layout i can write, but when change to bulgarian i can't. I click in the field for the words but just can't.

Can be the problem from my system locale, because some programs in bulgarian can't be translated and I see simbols.

One more thing: I can't write letters, but can write other symbols like :';][/\

Yes it was. I just set locale LANG=bg_BG.UTF-8. I will see after restarting if not set again I will make script for setting it.
