Rosette performs linguistic analysis that helps information retrieval applications understand search queries. For example, Rosette identifies individual words for languages such as Japanese that do not use spaces between words, breaks compound words into their individual components, and identifies parts-of-speech such as verb, adjective, etc.

We have been using Rosette for government client for a while now. Excellent package with infinite uses especially in combination with FastSearch pacakages.

Look at Basis Technology customers: Google, Fast, Lycos, Yahoo, Overture, Amazon, AOL to name a few. Seems like a de-facto standard for identifying asian languages.

Update/clarification:

I heard from Carl Hoffman the CEO of Basis Technology that:

Google uses our software for Japanese and Korean, in addition to Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese, for segmentation, morphological analysis, and stemming. Google also uses our "Core Library for Unicode" to handle transcoding between legacy encodings and Unicode.
