If you want to do this, one suggestions is: Have a db, where you store the text for each ouput, button, etc... under a number (in mysql autonum is your friend) copy this db, changing the textcontent in every desired language, to a new name f.e db_english, db_french.... now make an object, or function which requests the content of number x and disply it where it´s needed. like <? echo transtext("number","$language"); ?> As a hint, when incrementing the number of the text, add 10, as later you´ll need another text, and this will be put at the end of db. When making the site-scripts, don´t forget to have the original text nearby as comment. Otherwise you get mad, when you touch the code a second time.
