Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to any item (I used https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q28684004), add an "inception" field, which takes a date.
  2. Enter this date: 2001年8月31日
  3. The tool is clever enough to parse this Japanese date, fortunately.
  4. Enter this date: 2016年7月1日
  5. The tool does not understand this perfectly valid Japanese date, and says "The time value is malformed."

For your information, I copied-pasted these dates from https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%A1%8C%E5%B7%9D%E3%82%A2%E3%82%A4%E3%83%A9%E3%83%B3%E3%83%89 and https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/SGT%E7%BE%8E%E8%A1%93%E9%A4%A8 respectively.
