Search problem is something the Japanese team can't fix by ourselves

Please participate in there as well as wpdevel.wordpress.com.
To find out the current state of WordPress internationalization, I
recommend joining wp-polyglots mailing list as well.

I will try to put together some plan for ja.buddypress.org launch and
updating BuddyPress language file soon.
