You said "an application". You didn't tell us that you are talking about
Mozilla. So this is a Mozilla problem and not related to KDE in any way.

Mozilla can only be launched once from the same installation directory.
You probably use a script that tells the running instance to just open a
new window, i.e. Mozilla is still running in the same environment as the
already running instance and you just open a new window.
To have two Mozilla instances running with different environments you
need two installations of Mozilla, e.g. install one Mozilla into
/opt/mozilla1 and the second into /opt/mozilla2.
Then launch mozilla from the /opt/mozilla1 directory with the Chinese
environment and after that launch mozilla from the
/opt/mozilla2/directory with the Japanese environment.
