FileMaker is in full Japanese in the Japanese version. SignBank,
which is our development inside FileMaker, uses Arial as its default
font...So we chose Arial, if that is of any help!

I think the Japanese version of FileMaker would be the best, but I do
not know myself, what some of the issues will be with SignBank -
Someday I hope we can test Signbank in Japan...but not tomorrow!
