    I'm running wordpress 2.7.1 and I'm looking for an eCommerce solution that can handle the Japanese language without the use of a translator. I tried WP e-Commerce but I didn't have any luck with it. Anybody know of a solution?

    If you can't find anything, you'll need to change the Charset to "Shift_JIS" and translate the English into Japanese. This is what I have to do and it works perfectly. If you know PHP programming you can create a language switcher and language file that has English and Japanese. Then the user can simply switch between the two. I prefer the translations myself because I can keep the admin area in English while the front end is in Japanese. I also prefer coding in Shift-JIS because that is what Japanese people use. Anything else and it becomes difficult merge with other solutions as most Japanese software is in Shift-JIS.

    YAK supports Japanese language by the way. At least there's a translation (po/mo) which may be a little out of date, but easy to update if needed.
