Subject: Re: Core Component Analysis - SWIFT's Comments

I have a question with regards all this ongoing language business. It seems
that we can expect cross language support of some kind or another. Has
anyone thought of how this is going to be done for languages that use
different character sets. Using the Japanese example below, if XML is
presented in Japanese with a very complex character set the translation
into any western language using the standard Roman character set could be
quite a hassle. This is also true for Chinese, Thai and Hindi, as well as
those I can't think of right now. I am not trying to be funny here, if
anyone has any ideas in this regard I would be very interested to hear

Hi Philip and Martin,
I can draw the class diagram in Japanese using Rational Rose.
My concern is how to convert the class diagram in Japanese to XML DTD in
More precisely, in the phase of BOM, BRV, BTV, several business experts are
involved, and they would like to express their view in those models using
Japanese language. After the phase of BTV, I wonder BSV can be described in
Japanese. For the IT expert in Japan can design BSV in Japanese more easily
than in English.
My question is WHEN the class diagram in Japanese can be mapped in English
version of the class diagram or XML DTD, and HOW.
