Change log:

Updated the Japanese Library with improvements to the medical devices translation. A new configuration, "compliance.medDevDCS_core-ibm", was added. This configuration includes the core medical devices content that is available in Japanese, and excludes supplementary content that is available in English only. It also includes a Japanese version of the medical devices Rational Team Concert process template. Note that this template has some differences from the English version in terms of work item types and timeline, because it is based on the previously translated OpenUP template, with the medical devices work item templates added.
