Editor shortcuts will not work if you launch the editor with a non-Latin-based language (ex. Russian, Chinese).  The editor must be closed and restarted with English (or possibly any Latin alphabet-based language) for shortcuts to work again.

Tested in:

 4.23.1 CL#9631420 

 4.24    CL#9962040

 4.25    CL#Main

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Add a non-Latin-based language to Windows, e.g. Russian
  2. Change to the language in Windows
  3. Launch the editor
  4. Try using some of the shortcuts (e.g. "[ ]" brackets to change position grid snap value, or showing console while in PIE " ' ")


Results: Shortcut keys no longer work in the editor

Expected: Shortcut keys to still work even when launching the editor with a different language.
