Hi everyone, I posted this in the PHP-i18n list, however got no answer so trying here). We are making a blog platform (http://oire.org/) which is provided in several languages (currently they are Russian, Ukrainian, and English). Now the i18n process is made as follows: we set a cookie on the site and depending on it we select the language to display the site in. We have three (currently) interface files: rus.lng, ukr.lng, and enu.lng (for English US). the format is the following: define ("MSG379", "Welcome!"); etc. I know that PHP does support somehow exporting the strings into a .pod file. Maybe it would be better to do that? If so, how can I do it? Could you suggest me maybe a better solution than we currently have? Thanks a lot!
I've never actually had to do this... But one idea that I came up with is using the browser language in taking a best guess at what language to display... In other words, if the user's browser language is set to Chinese, you can be fairly certain they read Chinese :)
And now that I typed that out, I realize that may not be what you are really looking for... And that's when we get into the part where I can't help alot because I've never had to do it :)
