    Hi all,
    I need to make my project to available on 3 different languages like English, French and Chinese. The user should select one language while installing the product and the application for the appropriate language should only be installed. How can I do this?
    Currently my application is only in English. How can I make this application into other languages? Is there any easy way to do that or I need to replace each and every text into appropriate language?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi

    I think you will need to go back to your project and replace each string with a reference to a constant string. These types of variables are localizable, ie you can set the value for each language your application uses. If you make them dynamic then your application will select the appropriate language version of the strings at run time. There is also a utility called Lingua but I've never used it so can't comment on it.
