I am just starting out on a project that has to be multi-lingual. i.e.
every word/sentence I output has to be translated. 

The user logs in, and I read the language they use, by looking at the
user record.

I then need to get the language translations from a database.
I just "select label, text from language where lang = "English";

Fields: [label],[text],[language]
Example: "M1002","Please enter the delivery address","English"

At the moment I download them into a associative array, so I can
access the text like this.


where 'M1002' is a label. I have made txt a session variable.

The trouble is, there are so many text translations (6000+), that it
takes about 10 seconds to download them all into this array.

I don't want to access the database every time I need to print out
some text.


How can I improve the startup time??  In case it was not obvious from
the above, I am a newbie at PHP!!
