    Since there seems to be significant interest in Japanese input here, I thought I'd create a thread devoted to such.

    Edit:
    (I do actually intend to post my Japanese layout, but I'm waiting for inkscape to finish compiling since there's a bug in the version I had)

    Excellent! For those of us who can't yet read it, what does the title say?

    It says "Japanese input" (nihongo nyuuryoku). I'll add the translation to the title >^,^<

    I liked the discussion on the Geekhack thread, so I am curious to the additions here. When I studied Japanese years ago (and forgot almost everything because I don't use it) I just used the Microsoft IME for Japanese combined with a standard AZERTY keyboard. It was fun however I found it very time consuming thinking how to type a word in romaji, then seeing the hiragana and then selecting the correct kanji.

    Don't expect much improvements over this... Nearly all japanese people use this method to enter japanese, it's close to one of the most efficient.

    We mostly aim to reduce a little bit the number of keystrokes (or at best being able to type an unknown character by entering e.g. radical and number of strokes, or four corners method, but they're usually even more inefficient)
