[Tkinter-discuss] How do Tkinter's Entry/Text support for Ctrl+X/Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V (cut, copy, paste) work in non-English locales?

It seems that Tkinter Entry and Text widgets have built in
support for basic clipboard functionality via the keystrokes
Ctrl+X/Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V (cut, copy, paste).

Of course these make sense for English speaking locales. How does
this functionality work when Tkinter is used in non-English
locales? Are these keystroke shortcuts hard coded or do they
switch to locale/language specific shortcuts?

Is there a way to turnoff this functionality or map these
built-in clipboard keystrokes to different keys?
