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.
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.
