    If you use asp.net 2. The easiest way is to use resource files, two asp.net folder App_GlobalResources and App_LocalResources are to store .resx files of application scope or page specific. Different extension of .resx files stand for different culture, e.g: Default.aspx.fr.resx and Default.aspx.en-US.resx are both for the same page and you can let asp.net auto decide or explicitly pick up one to use.

    And if you already coded your pages, just go to the Design view of a page, then Tools -> Generate Local Resource and vs will gen a page specific .resx file for you~

    Sorry... I forgot to mention that I am using 1.1 - that's what the client wants... :(


    Is there any way with 1.1 framework?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the link, but I am still having trouble understanding how this works. Also it is in C# and I am coding in VB... I think that I am just really confused! Where should this code go?


    public LocalStringIndexer Strings
            if (stringIndexer == null)
                stringIndexer = new LocalStringIndexer();
            return stringIndexer;

    This is it: he use a BasePage whith inherits from System.UI.Page and coded the property in BasePage, and then let all his pages inherit from it.

    The base page strategy is a very common but useful way to manipulate the whole site~
