You´re welcome here, if your questions related to php. If there are specific
php-windows questions, you should ask them on the windowsPHP list.

You can shorten this :
echo "<a href="'$HTTP_HOST."/german/".$PHP_self.'">German</a>';
echo "<a href="'$HTTP_HOST."/spanish/".$PHP_self.'">Espanol</a>';
but it should be enough if you use
echo "<a href="'german/".$PHP_self.'">German</a>';
assuming that this dir/page is locatet in the root of your vserver.
