Sometimes I need to create a document in Japanese: I know Mathematica supports typing in Japanese. However it doesn't seem to support direct (inline) input in Japanese.
Whenever I need to convert words in Japanese, it opens in the temporary editor like the image below.
Is there any way to support direct input in Japanese. Using Japanese language interface didn't help. I noticed that same thing occurs for typing in Chinese and Korean. Basically any language that requires conversions before confirmation on words.
MacWiki on Mathematica says Mathematica doesn't support direct input in Japanese. However, this post is from 2011 and I was wondering if things gotten better.
