As in, I want to run Splunk in a datacenter in China and they speak Mandarin.

Does Splunk have a Mandarin-based Splunk GUI?

Also, related to this, does it support double byte characters?

The Splunk Web user interface is available in both simplified and traditional Mandarin. To change locales, just change the URL you are using. Instead of

http://hostname.local:8000/en-US/...

use

http://hostname.local:8000/zh-CN/...

http://hostname.local:8000/zh-TW/...

UPDATED with additional information from Ledion: Splunk has support for multibyte character sets, but there are limitations in (for example) field extractions and field transformations that use regex, where international characters are not allowed. Other methods of field extraction (delimiter, auto, json, xml, and so on) do support field names in international character sets.

@ChrisG, not sure what you mean but Splunk has had support for international char field extraction since late 4.1.x
