A lot of the answer to your question depends on what the language the version is aired in considers a different letter and what it doesn't. As a good demonstration, Spanish treats Ñ as a different letter from N, but it doesn't treat Á, É, Í, Ó, Ú, or Ü as different from their unaccented versions even though it uses them, too. (He is wrong in that Ç is a different letter from C in French—it isn't. It uses a number of different accent marks, but the same alphabet in English.)
Another thing is that sometimes what English considers to be a sequence of two or sometimes even three letters in English is considered just one letter in the foreign language in question. (Spanish used to treat CH and LL as single letters, for instance, and this is known to be reflected in some episodes of La Ruleta de la Fortuna in Spain from the mid-90s. In Dutch, IJ is unofficially considered a single letter, and while I don't remember off the top of my head how the various versions of Rad van Fortuin handled it, Lingo treated it as one letter.)
