This need to be solved in the framework you are using for generating HTML.

For Java the typical problem with resource bundles has been that they could
not be easily changed if used the simplest way. This was solved in Java 6.

For AS/400 centric solutions, I believe I've seen classes in jt400.jar which
can look up message texts on the AS/400 (which I have not tried myself), but
might be an interesting alternative if you already have a workflow there.

Subject: [WEB400] Web Application Internalization Best Practices


We are reevaluating our approach to I18N for web applications. This
involves supporting multiple languages for all our browser UI labels and
messages and error messages.
Our requirements are to be Operating System and Database Independent.
Today we utilize Java and resource bundles but want to see if there are
better approaches.

What are others doing?
What are the other best practices? Gotchas?

Thanks, Paul Holm
