There is already a page on how to set up UIM with Japanese input. The document 'UIM' currently redirects there. However, UIM, like ibus or scim, is capable of handling many languages. I'm willing to write up how to set up Korean input with UIM, for instance. I think it'd be more appropriate if UIM could become a separate article with links to how to set it up with various languages, like how the other input method frameworks are done here on the arch wiki.--Isaac914

Is it very different to set up different languages than Japanese? Because you could instead just move this page to UIM (I can delete the redirect for you so you can move it there) and rewrite all the content that applies in general, and explain the settings for the specific languages where appropriate, without the need to create a separate article for each one. -- Kynikos (talk) 12:48, 27 November 2014 (UTC)
I think that's a better idea. I'll begin writing up a possible rewrite. The japanese-specific stuff would be demoted down to a single section or so. I'll also add a korean secion. --Isaac914
Actually, most of explanation about Input Methods (i.e. language specific stuff) aren't depend on IM framework ({unrelated to, applicable for other} IM frameworks) so each language specific articles should be separated from IM framework's in the first place. IMHO, pages should be consisted of uim which describes about general topic of uim, and Input Japanese/Input Korean (for example) which describe about language specific topics. (When I became an Arch user, this page is already existent so I have been used as is...)--Blowback (talk) 08:46, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
