Not doing it myself, but (just guessing) it sounds like your problem is
twofold.  First, European (perhaps others as well) use A4 paper instead of 8
1/2 x 11.  There is a slight difference in size between the latter two.
 Secondly, overseas accounts for the most part don't use inches as a unit of
measure (don't know if it's millimeters or centimeters).  You'll need to find
the difference between CPI and CPx and perform a translation to get a proper
format on your overseas accounts.

Again, I'm not doing this -- but it's a pretty good guess IMHO :-)!
