Actually, they will.
Even if it's not a stocked item, BSA will run one-offs of a "rare" language for you; and yes, it will come in the native script... just as long as it's a "native/spoken" language somewhere
For those languages that they don't stock, (and you can't find from a 3rd party vendor), they used to also sell a blank so that you could fill in your own language. With a crafty person or a fancy sewing machine, you could have any language you can imagine without having to custom order any minimum quantities.
In the case of Latin, it might be easiest to get the 'Pig Latin' strip from a 3rd party vendor and pick out the first 3 letters.
Do our BSA friends in Puerto Rico have to special order the English strip? I don't see it listed on the supply division website. (Actually I know a 3rd party vendor that sells this one for $0.50.)
