    Building multi-lingual CMS apps

    Hi,
    Am new to this forum and came here searching for guidelines&solution for building CMS apps that can support multi-lingual content. I may have done a dumb search but could not find any thread that talked about a standard approach, framework design or work flow for developing a multi-lingual site / application.

    My requirement is to develop a multi-lingual CMS using LAMP and would greatly appreciate if someone could help me with the following info or any useful links:

    1. Are there any standard or best practices for multi-lingual development?
    2. Impact on Effort if multi-lingual feature is to be implemented if the development stage has started for the default language site.
    3. Which is the best way to store content so the data is in sync - without having to address each language content separately?

    Any suggestion would be of great help. Thanks in advance.

    Best,
    --raj

    And this has to be mentioned as well: If you use Zend_Form, it has built in support for Zend_Translate. I've used these components in my last web application, and I was very pleased with the result.
