Multiple Languages

Hi All,


Is there any option to create an application which supports different languages for MENU and other screens?

I mean where there will be an option to select the language while starting the application. Based on the selection you get the MENU and other screens in that particular language.


Thanks in advance Smiley Happy

Re: Multiple Languages

I am using Eclipse IDE in Windows 7 environment.
Here language means I am not talking about programming language. I mean different languages to display text on the screens once the application is deployed in the handset (version 5.0).

Thanks for the reply Smiley Happy

Re: Multiple Languages

Yesy, you can create easily app with multilanguage support. Check the localizationdemo in the BB samples, also it's worth to read the Development guide 

"When you become a level 3 developer, you learn to communicate over the ether. I'm told that level 5 developers are ascend into a higher level of existence beyond the physical realm." gord888 @ crackberry
