All patterns are charted using a standardised library of symbols, many of which will already be familiar to you. Less common symbols are usually explained in the back of the book with clear illustrations of how to work the stitch. You definitely don’t need to be able to read Japanese to use Japanese stitch dictionaries but you may find this Knitty article about working from Japanese knitting patterns helpful.
