Day 4 - Translation - Easy to Use Results
My "Day 4" report is a summary of the user interface tweeks to provide English for core common system parts.
See this webpage for the basic instructions, feature overview and download: http://www.aibohack.com/clie/vz90_eng.htm

IMHO, this is "good enough" to have a workable PDA for English speakers.
For example, if you use the DataImport program, the text remains in Japanese, but most of the functionality is graphical.
Anyone with a little familiarity with PalmOS/CLIE devices should be able to figure it out.
More work could be done to increase the amount of English in the apps, but that's up to you. The existing replacements are very small (except the Launcher replacement which is >200KB)
Things in English:
+ Category names (except the last one "Unfiled")
+ System alerts
+ other commonly used system wide things
+ most of Prefs panels (smattering of Japanese)
+ mini apps like Calculator, HotSync, Security
+ default app launcher
For other applications, I suggest using the methods suggested in the "Day 3" report, in particular find an existing English alternative.
