Displays Japanese text

Can the Cybook Gen3 display Japanese? I'd be interested in having a good Japanese-English dictionary on there (though the main reason for getting it would be to read English novels which are hard to find/expensive in Japan).

Thanks

and could it run an Japanese-English dictionary? The more I think about about it , the less likely it seems. An electronic dictionary, especially where non-roman character languages are involved, can get pretty complicated.

Isnt Japanaese a right to left language? If so, the it is not supported. The CyBook only support left to right languages at the moment.

in a book Japanese goes top to bottom and the vertical lines of text go right to left. Doesn't sound like it'll work...
