Starting multi-lingual

So let's get started with multi-lingual business. What we want to do is translate our string output so the view produces the translated output. Otherwise we would have to write one view for each language, and no one would like to do this. Generally, multi-lingual sites are very simple in their design. There are only four steps you would have to do:

  1. Decide which adapter you want to use;

  2. Create your view and integrate Zend_Translate in your code;

  3. Create the source file from your code;

  4. Translate your source file to the desired language.

The following sections guide you through all four steps. Read through the next few pages to create your own multi-lingual web application.
