Multilanguage JavaScript Alert - Any Solutions?

I've followed this guide (http://www.bitrepository.com/php-how-to-add-multi-language-support-to-a-website.html)  to implement multi-language on my site, but I have a few JavaScript alert boxes that display when validation fails, the problem is that they don't support PHP, does this mean there is nothing I could do now?

Any help / suggestions highly appreciated.

If you have your javascript inside you php file, you can use the same approach as they do with the other html.

Hello,
The error message could be stored in a php variable, just like  here (exactly like in the guide you linked here):

in the lang.en.php

define('LANG_JS_ERROR1', 'Please fill all fields!');

in the lang.es.php
 
 define('LANG_JS_ERROR1', 'Please fillos allos fieldos!');

 

And in the javascript form validation just simply call the php variable like here:

if (theForm.field.value == "")
{
alert("<?php  echo LANG_JS_ERROR; ?>");
theForm.field.focus();
return (false);
}

The php is processed before the js is processed so this will work.

Thanks for the nice suggestion. I didn the following :

if(null_file_count == upload_range){
            <?php echo $lang['upload_alert_nofile;']; ?>
            return true;
}

But when I view the source from browser, its :

if(null_file_count == upload_range){
                        return true;
}

Do you know why it doesn't process the PHP part?

The java script is actually in the php file or in a separate file? It has to be in the php file and after the language part (where you include the language files).
