Hello Aussie,

For building multi-lingual ASP.NET web application, it is also quite
straightforward and convenient(especially in ASP.NET 2.0). Both winform and
ASP.NET utilize the same underlying .net framework
globalization/localication fundamentials.

You can use ASP.NET designer to author the resource files(resx...) for
different languages and put them in your web application. And you can use
code or aspx tempalte to make the control display Text from the resource
file(of a specified culture). Here are some web articles introducing the
ASP.NET 2.0 globalization feature:
