    Hi there

    I am developing a site that should be available in 2 languages. What is the best way to go about this? Is there a best practice way of building a multi-language site using ASP.NET?

    Cheers

    I've got experience of developing multi-language sites using ASP.NET.

    When I was working on multi-language (5 languages) Chinese characters dictionary project I've developed GetLanguageControls() method for each language in the dictionary. these methods have initiated any time needed to re-draw controls and assign them specific features and properties. I was using ViewState variable to store data about current language. You can also store all language-specific data in a specific table in your SqlServer database.

    If you are working on a big project and opt for ASP.NET 2.0 to power your web-site you can also use new features available in .NET  Framework 2.0. Check up the following link to get details: http://quickstarts.asp.net/QuickStartv20/aspnet/doc/localization/default.aspx 

    If you are using programming approach used in CommunityStarterKit for instance, you can create folders for every language to be used in your application and put localized skins into these folders. Then, load appropriate skin into the web form according to current language.

    Cheers
