Translating A Website
Posted 05 May 2004 - 06:41 AM
We have decided to translate part of our website into about 15 other languages. Our company ships products worldwide so it makes sense to welcome any visitor in their own language. The site consists of basic html documents so I will be adding the translated text by hand. Are there any things I should look into? For example, do I have to include any special meta tags like doctype, encoding type, etc? I hope you understand what I mean. Thanks in advance!

The only recommendation that I have is that you may want to use a META tag to set the default character set for each language. You'll need to look up the various language character sets, but the basic syntax for setting the default to something like Japanese would look like:
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=EUC-JP">
I'm pretty sure you can find a list of the available charset's over at w3c.org.

We will indeed hire a professional translation company. I fully agree with you that it's a bad idea to use translation software since you'll never know what you'll end up with saying on your website!

LTR means: Left To Right
Years ago I have tried this, but I haven't had any use for it.
Sometimes it is convenient if you just simply want to confuse someone, since everything is being turned around, text and images still stay the same, but tables and anything layou related will be flipped around.
