Virtually all modern computers have Unicode fully enabled. This means 
you can type in any language whose writing system has been unicodified.

Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, various Indian languages, 
Arabic, Greek, Russian are all implemented.

Of these, I suggest Chinese, Japanese, and Russian as the top 
priorities. We all are aware, I believe, that both China and Japan have 
long standing horticultural traditions. Russia may be a surprise, but 
Russia has gardeners and horticulturists too. [I've read that Russian 
horticulture tends to focus on lilacs because they are so hardy.]
