Multi-language site in a smart way?

Mjello there,

I'm working on making my website in  two languages, Danish (da-dk) and English (en-us) with resource files etc.
And that actually working, I'm using master pages, and there for I catch the language in a cookie and set it from there.

But then I thought, search engines cannot read the site in both languages then :/

So I'm looking for a way that will be smart for everyone.
I have seen some sites (inclusive msdn) uses and - The same pages, but in different languages..
Is there a smart way to make this, so i maybe or virtual sites or something, it would be very exacting to create the whole site twice?

 - Hope you understand my problem..
Best regards Jeppe Richardt..

My first thought is that these websites use URL rewriting with a httpmodule. I can't imagine that these websites have all their pages twice (or more).

I think the httpmodule works as follows:

1) parse the url

2) check if there is a country/language code

3) set the culture according to this country/language code

4) remove the country/language code from the url.

best way to make a multi language localized website
Hi: I have been looking at several modules on snowcovered and other DNN sites to get an idea of how to localize a website. Basically I will be creating a website in spanish and will need versions in english and portuguese. Architecturally I have seen suggestions to create a subportal for each language and then have links to those subportals for people to select their languages...that seems like it would be localized by hand...are any of the tools "out there" robust enough to attempt more of a "dynamic localization"? If you have localized a website I would like to hear how you did it...

Multi-language Site
Hi Everybody,     I'd like to make my site a multilingual site.  I wonder how difficult to do this with DNN 3?  I'd like to give the user an option where he or she can pick the language for the site.

I've build a website.The site is ready, but now i need to display more languages.So i've made 3 buttons, each button is for a language.First i thought, i do it with the viewstate, but right then you don't have a different link for every page, that is not nice for google.

Is anybody running multiple languages on their websites? I'm exploring using a database to hold the text content in different languages and call it based on a session variable, but I don't much like this because of the inline html in so much of the text.   I could have a root directory for the site in English and then duplicate it in a "Spanish" subfolder.  I don't like this because I have to duplicate all of my images on the server.   I'm leaning toward creating a dup of every file in the site and begin every filename with "sp_".  Then have a session variable th...
