Dear SignBank beta testers, and Flavio in Japan!
Thank you for your feedback, Flavio. This is the kind of information
I needed to know....

I did not know there was a Japanese version of FileMaker. Can you
open the FileMaker program in general, (forgetting SignBank for the
moment), and the words on the screen are written in Japanese writing?

I need to know this to be able to help you....

This is wonderful news, by the way, if it is truly in Japanese. I had
been told by FileMaker corporation that they only supported Roman
alphabet languages...

Once I know the answer to this question, we will have to try to make
SignBank work in the Japanese environment -

You are the first, Flavio, to try SignBank in Japan -

Val ;-)
