And last time I checked 'Tuesday' is not a Japanese word...so its getting confused somewhere.
Hi. I think you answered your own question here. To explain what I mean, I have to tell my situation:
I am a native Finnish speaking person, living in Germany with a German wife, working using English and Swedish. I´ve installed English Windows 7 plus additional language packs for Finnish, Swedish and German.
To get date and time right, to correspond with operating system language, you have to set location to a country using same language than your operating system, in this case Windows 7. Because I´m using Windows 7 in English, I chose UK for location even I´m located in Germany. In my case it is UK and not USA because it also affects what kind of ads you get on web-pages and I´d rather watch European ads and additional information than American, living here in Europe.

For date and time format I have to choose a format from an English speaking country as well to get it right. I use US-format for date and time, modifying only the clock to use 24-hour system. (Image 2)
Same thing with my computers Finnish and Swedish Guest-accounts, and my wifes German user-account. Location on Finnish account Finland and format Finnish, on German account Germany and German, and on Swedish account Sweden and Swedish. Only this way every user account shows time and date right, corresponding with chosen operating system language.
Additional bonus is that IE8 looks always the location of the current user account, and different users of this computer get i.e. Hotmail and msn.com in their chosen language.
Worth to try?
