gencat and Japanese text - compile error

I am trying to compile a .msg file into a .cat file using gencat. The .msg file has English strings and I have added one Japanese string. It compiles successfully when only English strings are present, but I get the following error when the Japanese string is present:
nlsfile.ja_JP.msg:1410: invalid character: message ignored
I have tried both of the following with no joy:
>LANG=ja_JP.eucJP gencat nlsfile.ja_JP.msg
>gencat nlsfile.ja_JP.msg
Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi, I too am facing the same problem
"invalid character: message ignored" error message when I use input file containing Japanese characters for gencat.

If you have solved it, please let me know

possible fix

Have you got the fonts installed on the machine on which you are compiling?

If you are, for example, using
LANG=ja_JP.eucjp gencat ...
then you must ensure that ja_JP.eucjp is installed on your machine.
You can do this by running locale -a | grep ja. You should see eucjp in your output from this command.
