I'm afraid we don't have the resources to cover common practices in 
languages other than English, even if these languages use Latin-letter 
abbreviations that may have been derived from English originally. This 
sort of thing is better addressed by CLDR <http://cldr.unicode.org/>, 
which has a mandate to cover time zone abbreviations in non-English locales.
