Displaying Japanese characters


I have some English messages in a .msg file (eg aaa.en_US.msg), which I have compiled to get I have the same text, translated to Japanese in aaa.ja_JP.msg (again compiled to get a cat file). But when I display the Japanese text I get garbage.

Is it just a case of me not having the correct codepage installed? If yes, how do I install a codepage? Also, if I install a codepage, how do I tell the system what codepage to use?

Any suggestions (about a solution to this problem ) will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
