    Change site language

    Hey guys,

    I'm searching around, trying to figure out a good way to change the language on my site. I want to allow the user to be able to pick between English, Spanish, and Chinese; I'm not sure how to go about doing this.

    The content is not updated frequently, but there is a lot of information. I'm leaning towards using folders (mysite.com/en; mysite.com/sp; mysite.com/ch) and duplicating the site using these different languages. The only problem is that any time there's a change, I have to update 3x as much.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to approach this?
    Paid services is also an option.

    Thanks for any help.

    Check this out: http://www.altavista.com/help/free/f...archbox_transl

    You can add a line of code to your pages to reference BabelFish, which will translate it dynamically. Only thing: check your wording and make sure the translation fits your wording. I've found that I use idiomatic phrases, they do not translate well.

    Thanks KDLA,

    But I can't have the huge "AltaVista Bablefish" box, and I'd rather it open in the same window.

    I'd rather pay for a service that I can customize, or write it myself and store the translated pages in different folders (/en /sp /ch).

    Thanks though, I really appreciate your help.
