I got to develop the site as a bilingual site..in english & in german. I want to develop the site in english .
Is there any method by which I can convert the site into german by means of using any of the HTML tag's attribute..& if yes then is there any specific requirement?
The other way can be by using database of the translated words & then dynamically get the whole thing translated.. But I don't want to go thru that..
Please help me.
Thanx in advance

Not that I know of. But I certainly dont know everything. I think if it was me I would just make 2 versions of each page.

Dont blindly believe everything I say.

ah Internationilazation with HTML...wow that'd be something. A simple solution is as the previous post suggested is to have multiple versions of the same page and then give the user a chance to select from the homepage..u can then go on and store a cookie with the language selection and dynamically load the appropriate language pages.

Hi!
I am working on my second bilingual site (english/spanish) and the problem with language translation is that there is no really perfect translation software out there that can intuit the cognitive meaning of a phrase from one language to another- what I have done on the last site for links that can be translated into Spanish from English is to embed the Altavista babelfish translator onto the page...
To see what I mean go to: <url><http://hspr.org/cuidade2.html></url>;
