Result titles are ridiculously short in Japanese.

There's a similar post on this issue before but I make a new post because this is a big problem for us, Japanese users.
Result titles are too shortened in Japanese compared to other search engines so we can't see what those titles mean. Please see the images below. That's clear they're too shortened even if you don't understand japanese at all, right?

I found this problem has prevented many japanese from switching to DuckDuckGo. This is sad for both japanese users and DuckDuckGo.
I hope this will be fixed soon.Thanks.

Hi. I found this as well and reported it as a bug a while ago. I found that if you switch off the locale setting (i.e. no region) then the Japanese titles are not truncated. Anyway, hopefully it will be looked into soon.

Hi. Thank you for your reply.
I tried that before but the problem remained when I switched the locale setting. Strangely, search results were correctly shown when I switched it to US (Or any other regions other than Japan), but this can't be the solution because you can hardly find Japanese web sites by English queries.

I added two screenshots to the first post, one is the result with no region selected and the other is with U.S. Please check them out.

Thanks for the explanation - I see what you mean.
Not sure why the Japanese locale is different to the others.
