I have certain issues in Globalization of one of our product.
We have an existing s/w in VC++ ( 6.0) windows 2000( MFC Application exe) which i have to port for globalizations. The approach which i have taken is:
I moved all the resources in the seperate dll and replace all the hard code values with creating the new ID in the string table.
By doing this I am able to display my application in Chinese, Japnese, spanish etc.
But i have certain doubts in this:
1) the document which i have studied during R & D suggested that we have to make our application in unicode and use different resources for different languages, But making our appliation in unicode is the cumboresome jod so i didn't do that. So i want to know is it make any impact in the future on my application.
2) i am working with Windows 2000 English version, I have to set the difernt langauges in the locale to get different displys But i want to know whether it will work with the OS in different languages version or not. for example : whether it will with the chinese OS or not.
3) I am note able to convert my application in hindi, as far i studies it will require unicode, so unicode is must in this case, Is it true.
4) Its a very strange thing that i am achieving my goal without unicode. I am not fully convienced with my approach, please let me know wheather i am doing right thing or not.
Please , if anybody knows about my queries, let me know.
this is very urgent.
Thanks in advance,
