    Question Multi-Language ( Site Replication) Help!

    I am new to the whole idea of Designing Websites that are Multi Language d. And so I have been doing research on the Web(Google) to learn more about it. After my search, I have come to believe that the Site Replication Method is by far the best way to go.

    Here is the problem.... There are many Websites that explain the methods, but none to really show you how to do it. I am looking for resources that take you through the steps(tutorials) so that I can gain this valuable knowledge.

    So, does anyone know where I can get a simplified crash course on achieving such a task?

    Thank you....

    Depends on the granularity of translations.
    I, for one, wouldn't go for replicating the website for each language, because it creates a lot of management overhead. What if you decide to add a new feature? You need to implement and deploy that code to all the replicated sites.

    Unless it's e-Commerce, why not just put a Google Translate tool on the site?

    Have you tried using Google Translate? In my experience, the results are...interesting.

    I tried using this when I was doing a French course for the OU - total waste of time for anything other than 1 or 2 word translations.
