Uh, the X11 login screens usually offer different language locales for
selection. If there are no non-utf8 locales, one can usually add them
in /etc/X11/gdm/locale.conf or something.

You have to pardon me if I don't know what kind of utilities and
desktop environments you have installed and/or available.
But I suppose that your system offers some packages to make the system
workable to more than people used to hand-editing config files.
And so it would likely be informative to see what external programs
tend to do with /etc/passwd.
How did you get that entry there in the first place?
