    Bilingual user here and I'm hoping Lion has some improvements to Kotoeri, the Japanese input method for Lion. I'm also hoping that it adopts track pad writing, like the Chinese input, in Lion, but this seems unlikely.

    Anyone using Lion care to comment?

    This is taken directly from the apple website.

    Japanese input method
    The candidate window in Lion allows sorting in radical and yomi and displays definitions for the words. It also provides improved conversion and predictive input.

    Improved Simplified Chinese recognition
    Lion includes improved accuracy for Simplified Chinese handwriting recognition, as well as an extended Simplified Chinese recognizer with Roman symbols, punctuation, and a small set of additional characters. The handwriting input window is now movable.

    I find the new kotoeri to be a lot better than the old one. I was using Googles free Japanese Input before because I had so many issues with the SL kotoeri. YMMV
