How does one display asp pages in another language other than English?
I know that it is done, but I do not know the steps to do so.
I know it will involve the character set and after some reading, i am confused as to why my pages do not render anything other than English.

Hi,

Well, there's some technology behind your desired solution ... for some expert points you can't expect too much despite all the help I'm ready to offer for free ... it's always a question of time needed for a solution ;-))

A simple way to do a "translation" for example for japanese/russian or greek is to take the text in the desired language, copy it and paste it in text-view into a frontpage htm/html page ... then you change to html-view and will find your text translated to charcode (you can safe it afterwards) ... when calling the page in a browser you'll find it in the desired language ...

... a better way is to work with a database (sql-server f.ex.) there you take nvarchar or ntext formats for your text and display it through dao/ado/rdo or whatever by using unique identifiers for each language from the recordsets ...

... the easiest way on doing what your looking for is provided by the .NET interface ... but even with simple ASP it's not too difficult!

Best regards, Raisor
