Works for me.  As root do:

 install -m 755 -d /usr/X11/lib/X11/de/appdefaults
 cp /usr/X11/lib/X11/app-defaults/XTerm /usr/X11/lib/X11/de/app-defaults

Translate the "de" one into German, then try:

 setenv LANG de
 xterm

Japanese may be a bit of a problem (until we have proper locale
support for it). You have to convince the system that LANG
is "ja" before Xt turns on the wide character support...
