Excerpt of article text...

In the second of my series of three articles, I would like to discuss localization.

Firstly, I defined a property gLanguage which I used in most of the modules which involved localization. This value can be set in the preference screen. When the user first logins through the splash screen of my application, this value in the preference table is assigned to gLanguage.

I had thought about using the Language from the Windows/Mac OS but some of my clients want to use our application in English with English data although their operating system is in French since they are located in France. Also we have other clients who are using our application in French with French data, but they are located in London and travel a lot all over the world.
