The Japanese version of VS 2008 Beta 2 is now available

Brian Harry


Part of our work leading up to shipping a product is investing in getting ready for localized versions of it.  Today we released the Japanese version of Beta 2 and are looking forward to feedback on how well we’ve done.  Are any fields clipped?  Is the translation good?  Did we miss translating any portions?  Do we handle sorting and other operations properly?  Etc.

If you are a Japanese speaker, we’d appreciate you trying it out and letting us know what you think.  In the next few weeks we’ll be releasing another wave of localized Beta 2 versions and I’ll let you know when that happens.
