Thanks for the reply.
I've changed the keyboard layout, country/region language, logged out
and logged back in changing the language at login. I chose Japanese in
This gave me Japanese menus but still gave me English text in OO, text
editor, and Abiword.
This is in FC1 using KDE 3.1
The rub is MS actually does this a lot better than Linux according to my
friend. He doesn't want to continue with MS products, but his clientele
is predominantly international students.
I'll keep looking around for an answer.
