Adding multi-lingual capabilities to your application

Environment: Windows NT 4, Windows 2000

The support for multiple languages within one application has always been a drag, for NT 4.0 and Window 2000 I have fond a simple solution. Unfortunatley this does not work for Windows 95 or 98 :-(

1. Add all the resources (dialogs, strings, menues etc.) in all of the desired languages in your project.

2. Add a menu, or language selection dialog in your project which calls the code shown below.

3. Thats it.



   // switch language to german
   ::SetThreadLocal(MAKELCID(MAKELANGID(LANG_GERMAN,SUBLANG_DEFAULT),SORT_DEFAULT));
   ...
   // or back to english
   ::SetThreadLocal(MAKELCID(MAKELANGID(LANG_ENGLISH,SUBLANG_DEFAULT),SORT_DEFAULT));
