Wildcard Search on Picklist

We have a long list of elements requiring to select using picklist, everytime user need to scroll a very long list in order to get to the element we want.

As the element name of ours may have a mix of multiple languages, the sorting does not help the user at all, many users may have to spend a lot of time eye scanning and sometimes could miss the element.

  • Future consideration
Who would benefit from this IDEA? Every user who uses Picklist would benefit from this idea
How should it work?

Something similar to how SUBNM behave would be good enough, and even better is to allow to type in any text and able to search regardless of where the character may be on picklist.

Currently require a human eye scanning and this is really impacting the usability of the system.
