Hi
We have a client that has multiple shares on the server. They might have more shares then available in English Language. So we might run in to issues of running out of English drive letters. Is there any other method of providing easy access to network shares?

Use DFS and point one of the letters to the root of DFS, so they can access all shares they have access to via that one letter.

You can also use access based enumeration so they only see folders they have access to.
