I don't know how to create a multilanguage using html.I have already created the site in English.Now i want to give the German link in my site and clicking on that link,the contents of the page should be changed to German.How can i do this using HTML.

Please tell me a way.I am in deep trouble.

Unless you want to mirror the entire website twice, with two seperate html files, one for German and one for English, then you will probably be best off with a dynamic server side scripted solution. Nearly all the work I do is multilingual, both French and English and we use a database driven approach with PHP.

If you really can't use a server-side / database driven approach and you don't want to make the same page twice with different languages, then perhaps you can cheat a little and use Javascript and place all the language values in an array. Populate the HTML with the english array or the German array, depending on the link selected.

There are whole books written about javascript and whole books about what you want to do. There is no way anyone can do the whole process here.

Did you try the translation service above? Sounds like that would be your best bet.
