I translate PC-BSD messages into Japanese.
I found some problems for Japanese user at
PC-BSD 1.4RC and older 1.4 snapshot.
* Installer cannot set to Japanese keyboard layout
In installer, if you select keyboard layout to "jp(Japan)",
XkbModel in /etc/X11/xorg.conf should be set to "jp106"
for Japanese keyboard. But, XkbModel set to "pc105".
And, KDE's keyboard layout set to "Generic 104-key PC".
It should be set to "Japanese 106-key".
* Missing Japanese TrueType font.
Current version's PC-BSD have Chinese TrueType fonts. It can display
Japanese text. But, that quolity of Japanese text isn't good.
Please install ports/japanese/vlgothic to install disc and HDD
same as PC-BSD 1.3.
* Date display in PC-BSD's KDM theme is NOT user-friendly for east asian people.
In east asia(Japan/China/Korea/etc.), date format is
(Month Day Day_of_the_week hh:mm). But, KDM theme is fixed for
european-style date format(Day_of_the_week Day Month hh:mm).
I've only one negative solution: remove date display from KDM theme.
