IMO, this is not tomcat specific, so reply to me off line if you want to 
discuss it further.

I'm not 100% certain, but shouldn't you simply be specifying the 
appropriate international character set to use for that instance of your 
application? A text field is a text field, it's the character set the 
determines the "language" in use. Any UTF-8 application should be able 
to use the international character sets.

The secondary issue is changing your labels, etc., but that sort of 
internationalization is fairly straightforward and done in lots of 
applications. Our app (see: -- it's open source) is set 
up for internationalization and we have functional versions in a wide 
variety of languages.
