Hi

I have a cusomter who wants a website with a dropdown with a list of countries and the website is displayed in the appropriate language

1) Is  internationisation the right world for this? Quoting from http://www.w3.org/standards/webdesign/i18n

http://www.w3.org/standards/webdesign/i18n

2) Secondly is this possible on a single website as other internationalised websites send you off to a differnt website for the country you chooose

3) I have seen gettext. I will look into this, Is this a possible solution?


I can only imagine you have every phrase on the website stored in each language and depending on what language the user picked from the drop down you have a massive switch statement on country to go to the database and get all the statements for that page in the right language

thanks a lot
