FileMaker on cross platform and multiple language versions

Post

Here's a doosie for you but I can't move forward without confirming these issues.

New to FM but somewhat experienced in DBs. I want to implement FM in my business environment in Shanghai, China but can't buy until I sort these out.

In essence, I want to implement FM with a group of users that include both English speaking and Chinese speaking. Most my admin & acct staff work on Mac in Chinese whereas most my Operations mgmt team work on Mac English. And I, to complicate things even further will be developing the whole DB on Win7 (English).

1) Can I develop the DB and all forms on a Win7 (English) platform and have the data accessible to everyone using Mac, including Mac in Chinese?

2) Can I develop the DB in the English version of FM and have it accessible to my Mac users that use the Chinese version of FM?

Your help is greatly appreciated, i'm stuck :(

Thanks
