Change Text on Form to another language

P: 6
Hi, I already have a VB program using English and I would like to change the langauge used on the form to Spanish. I am not sure how to go about this.

In case you didn't understand, all I am trying to do is change all the text in English that appear on my form currrently to Spanish

thanks for your help.

Well, as we've just learned in another forum here on theScripts, you can use babelfish.altavista.com to translate the text for you. If you need the text to be translated at runtime, then I don't know how you would do it, though I think resource files come into it somewhere.

In the VB Resource Editor you can alter the string table and use IDs in your code rather than literals. Then you just use a different string table for each language. Sounds simple right? Takes a lot of planning and well written code.

Good luck
