Load different language strings

Hi All,
I have a aplication that is using 2 language strings (english and norwegian) what i want to do is ... when i run  the application, i.e at the runtime , I want to load the strings from the both language string tables.... i have some tags stord in this string tables and at run time the user enters a tag ( it can be in english or in norwegian) and regardless of the users language setting i want to load both the strins .... i tried to use this .Loadstring() but it will load according to the local language. how can i load strings of both of these languages

Thankx in advance

Create a DLL that will store all the resource.
ie. In an empty DLL MFC project add all the resource for a particular Language.
In the similar way add DLLs for each language.

Each DLL will have resource.h. This file should be same for each DLL, only the corresponding STRINGS will change.

And in your main project, include this resource.h. For loading different languages, load the different DLLs and get this strings by setting this DLL as the Resource, Now the code....



HINSTANCE hInstance = LoadLibrary("EnglishDLL.dll");
AfxSetResourceHandle(hInstance);

//LOAD THE STRING USING *LoadString*, so you will get english resource


hInstance = LoadLibrary("NorwegianDLL.dll");
AfxSetResourceHandle(hInstance);

LoadString(----)

Now you will get the norwegian string...

Good Luck :)

If you are working with VC++ 7 or later, you can use the LoadString function which has Language ID parameter. In VC++ 6 such function may be implemented using FindResource API.

Create INI file for each language you have.
Use GetPrivateProfileString to load the strings from the INI file.
