Its a good choice, but I expect Evolution, when it gets stable for gtk2,
will be great for any language. (I hope anyway)

dont know, have never tried japanese there. But since its working with
gtk2 I would think yes.

any editor that support plain text files and enough encodings plus yudit
(yudit has had the best i18n support i have found so far)

Again, I like gtk2 and gnome, and I think when 2.4 gets here it will
support i18n pretty much, but so far, I have found that everybody says
japanese locales are not utf8 ready yet, so 100% support is a bit away

I would really much like to help them, but I have no idea about how to
build a locale, and who are working on those locales (dont want to
duplicate efforts)
