I try that I translate geoserver into Japanese.
Then I translated ApplicationResources.properties into Japanese and made ApplicationResources_ja.properties.
But when I examine it, pages is not displayed justly by Japanese.
Cheked pages displayed by a browser, character set is iso-8859-1 but not UTF-8.
I have examined in both environment of Jetty and Tomcat, OS is Windows 2000.
Japanese of ApplicationResources_ja.properties was encoded by unicode, too.
A example of source
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="ja" xml:lang="ja">
<meta content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" http-equiv="content-type"/>
What is necessary besides ApplicationResources_ja.properties to localize geoserver in Japanese?

<p>This might be the same problem as: <a href="http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOS-418" class="external-link" rel="nofollow">http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOS-418</a>

<p> have received the comment about geoserver's japanese localizaiton, but unfortunately the problem is unsolved yet.
Though I have read "How to Localize GeoServer" and "Struts Internationalization (i18n)", but can't find a solution.
ApplicationResources_ja.properties was located in /geoserver/WEB-INF/classes, and Charset in the pages displayed in a browser is always charset=iso-8859-1.
After displed in browser, encoded the pages by manual at brower menu, then page is displayed justly by Japanese. </p>
<p>According to this, geoserver does not seem to do UTF-8 encode processing in time of reading or the page output to a browser at all.
French and Spanish have no problem because a character code is 1 byte system, but the reason why Japanese is not displayed justly may be that Japanese is multi-byte character code.
If there was the experienced person who localized in language of multi-byte code such as Chinese, please give me advice</p>

<p>I think you got a fix for this? I know we're shipping a japanese version now and afaik it's working fine.</p>
