Support for Japanese for watsonx Code Assistant for Red Hat Ansible Lightspeed.

Several Japanese customers & business partners are requesting Japanese support for watsonx Code Assistant for Red Hat Ansible.

Many companies in Japan use Ansible to automate their day to day tasks in IT Operation. While Japanese customers and business partners are very much interested in this new technology, they are not too enthusiastic about prompting in English. Having to prompt in English discourages (in some amount) Japanese customers from considering watsonx Code Assistant. Since English is not the mother tongue for most Japanese, they feel that it will take time trying out and improving prompts in English, which results in less time to value.

If watsonx Code Assistant accepts Japanese prompts, it will lower the bar to start using the product and there will be more business opportunities.
