Multi-language site and physical hierarchy

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm a little bit familiar with site cultures and ressources with .NET 2.0.
However, I'm wondering how this following scenario could be achieved:

My site supports 2 cultures (fr, en). The site's physical structure is in
english. But to be more search engine friendly, when the site is displayed
in french, the directory structure ideally must be in french (not
http://test.com/friend/delete.aspx but http://test.com/ami/effacer.aspx). Is
there a technique to achieve this without duplicating the entire site?
(virtual directories? ... )

Thank you very much!

URL Rewriting is one option (mapping the french name to the English page).
You use an HTTP handler to do this:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms972974.aspx

MVC also provides another option, although the MVC Framework is not gold
code yet. It does contain a Go Live license on the current download (MIX
2008). You will generally want to download both the ASP.NET Extensions and
the MVC Framework:

Extensions: http://tinyurl.com/2glz42
MVC Framework: http://tinyurl.com/2breds
