I'm working on a woodworking japanese-english dictionary. I started to edit it with winXP but would feel better to work with Linux. Which distro can allow me to type Japanese? I'm sure a Japanese distro will make it possible, but I'd feel rather unconfortable with a Japanese interface!

If that's possible, is it as straight forward and user convienient as with winXP?

Almost every linux distro I've used has support for Japanese (along with Korean, Chinese, French, Russian etc etc etc)

I favour SCIM and Anthy, but Cana and kinput2 have been around for years and years (at least since 1995 when I first tried Slackware).

What distro do you currently use? If you aren't using linux yet then try one of the live CD/DVD distros first to see what you like.
