Description of problem:

initial help text.

2. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 /usr/bin/xemacs -help
1. see screenshot
1. No French in initial splash help text
2. help to appear in shell

French is displayed... well, because the Japanese startup screen code actually
contains French :P. I don't speak nor write either, will report upstream.
Unless you happen to know Japanese well enough to provide the translation?
> 2. help to appear in shell
After "xemacs exiting.", I see also 'Cannot open load file: "un-define"'; the
attached patch (for xemacs-packages-extra) appears to be one crude way of fixing
it for XEmacs >= 21.5, will send upstream too.

Don't try to load un-define in XEmacs >= 21.5 (in Japanese UTF-8 setups)

Here is a patch with Japanese translations.
I attached it as binary since I am not very sure what will happen to the
as plain text. (Japanese is ISO2022-JP, French was already corrupted?)

But since according to cvs this file hasn't changed in the last couple of years
that should be fine I guess. :)

(Attachment 154375 [details] should be in iso2022-jp.)
Oh, if upstream prefers utf-8 encoding I am happy to provide it too.
Fixed in 20070427-1 in Rawhide, and both changes committed upstream too. Thanks!
Maybe unrelated but when I ran xemacs in rawhide yesterday I noticed
some garbage/boxes in a couple of the entries on the menubar,
presumably fonts related - I guess until now the menu was not translated?
Do you want another bug for that?
Yes, please report all new bugs as such.
Anyway, I know that there are charset issues with the buffer tabs, but don't
remember encountering them in the menubar.
Ok, no problem: I opened bug 243973 for the ja menubar issue.
