Have all possible usernames in the database in unicode and let the container take care of it. Java is by default unicode so it shouldn't have any problem. Just make sure the database has the usernames in different languages and they point to the same user. Or maybe have a separate table that holds the tranlsations and link to it with the id of the user.

1. One solution to teh problem could be to take name in different languages when you get a user registered and then check it for all the login names.

2. The other solution could be if somehow you  can get Keyboard Key pressed not the char pressed. and you can send the keys of teh keyboard to find match instead of the word typed
