I whant to have my Magento shop to offer two (later more) languages.
I have created three views with the names "English" and "German". (Btw. where do you need the "Code" setting in "Store View Information"?). Now the pull down menu with the two languages appear in the store.

For SEO benefits, I whant to use distinct top level domains for distinct languages: a de-domain for German and the com-Domain für english version of the shop. The domain switch works fine according to my URL settings.

But there is a problem with the switch of the language specific contents!
The language of pre-defined menus like "My Account", the category names and product title and descriptions are changed randomly. Sometimes they are in the correct language for the domain, sometimes they are different.

1. What settings are to be adjusted for language specific views?
2. Does magento handle the top level domain separation of languages? Or are there any issues known?  How to solve?
