    I would like to create a multilingual site. But I don't know what is the best way.
    The one way what I know is to create all pages on a different language, but it will be a lot of work later if I want to change something on my site. So if it's possible I would like to use a simpliest way.
    Any good idea?
    Thanks for you help in advance.

    It's a lot of work to create and maintain a multilingual site. See if you can get others to help you translate/maintain it. I've done several multilingual sites, and if anyone knows an easier way I'd love to hear it.

    Above all else, don't use the freebie translators out there on the web. They'll make a mockery out of your site!

    Hope this helps

    Currently the only way to make a truly is to have translators work on each page. A lot of resources and a lot of overhead. If you live in a college town maybe you can recruit students to help you on this project.

    In the future online translators should make this a moot process. [www.squaresoft.com]Squaresoft Inc.[/url], is working on a real-time translator that they plan to market to other companies. They plan to use it for real-time online gaming but it would have many applications.
