Hi there;

In ASP.NET, I am about to start for a web application which I will require to write the app for different languages.

What is the best and fast way for this?

You'll need to do localization. There is also some info in Codeproject when you look for localisation there

so the general idea is that whenever you use any control with content in it, do not set the content in the code.

Rather, use the resource files. and set the content values of the controls to the strings contained in the resource files. Every language will have its own resource file with the content for those languages.

When a request is received, the app can check for the localization parameters [or as per the app logic] and then set the appropriate resource file for the appropriate language.

This is the basic idea behind localization and multi-language support.
Do let me know, if you need more assistance. :)
