    Multi language

    Does anybody has a good tutorial on how to create multi language applications?

    I've searched a lot, but I think i'm not using the right keywords, because I can't find a good tutorial.

    I already figured out that I must use String resources, but I don't know how to load the right resource or something.

    Thanks in advance

    You mean, C and C++? Or something more incompatible like Perl and Python?

    Uh . . . I don't think just using a "String resource" will let you use multiple programming languages.

    *slaps forehead* Oh, you mean multiple languages like Japanese and Hungarian! Well, that's different.

    You could just have a string
    Code:
    string greeting[] = {"Hello", "Salve"};
    and then choose the right one based on what language is expected.

    I haven't written any multilingual programs so I can't help you too much.
