Manage Regional Settings via GPO
The language faculty want to have the option of using japanese/chinese scripts via the language toolbar. Is there any way we can configure this via GPO or do we have to manually do it for each user on the workstation?
They are the only users who want this functionality, and all of the images have this disabled by default.

I have looked around and havn't been able to find any way to automate the deployment of extra input locale profile other than at install time with the unattended answer file. Depending on how many machines are involved it may be better to either do it manually or do a reimage with these locales installed.
I did find a whole bunch of tutorials on adding the locales which also include some additional helper applications to make the text entry easier (on screen keyboard type stuff).
Keyboard Installation and Use
Declan's Guide to Installing and Using Microsoft's Japanese IME - Windows Vista, XP & 2000 - looks like for japanese you need to actially install some extra files to handle the script characters.
Come to think of it is might be worth trying to use something like Winstall LE to capture the regestery and file changes when one machine has teh locales installed. With a good clean up of the MSI you may be able to deploy it via GPO.
This GPO could be handy to reset the locales at logon:
