Designing a boolean search interface

This is a part Computer Science question, part Design question (apologies if
some of the logic doesn't make sense)
So, I need to design a search interface that would eventually spit out a
boolean query without typing it out.
For Eg:
D= Data Field

(D1 OR D2) AND (D3 OR D4)
D1 AND (D2 OR D3) AND D4

To put it in context, assume its a library search and the user wants to
search books by Author A OR Author B that have Keywords A AND Keywords B and
are published between a certain date range. Is anyone aware of design
patterns for such an interface.

Localization of keyboard shortcuts

Do you think it is good to localize (or allow customization of) keyboard
shortcuts? I am referring to the context of an application, not a web site.

For instance, in Spain, to save, the Ctrl + G (Guardar) key combination is
used pervasively instead of Ctrl + S (Save). However, across the board there
is little consistency as for example the Spanish Ubuntu operating system
uses Ctrl + S and Spanish Microsoft Windows uses Ctrl + P for printing
whereas printing is "imprimir" in Spanish.

"Kindle Love" concept prototype: www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_uVLg9UxRw

Given soundings of a new 2nd generation Kindle on the way, thought you
might get a kick out this short concept prototype ("Kindle Love")
video sketch by a small group of students in my recent "Scenarios &
Simulations" course at Kansas. Credits at end.

Product designers learning grammar of story-telling and film–
contextual, not deadly serious.
