    Hi

    I'm about to start wotk on a large e commerce site which is to be multi
    lingual and support multi currencies.

    The site needs full content management so obviously it needs some severe
    planning.

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any resourses / advice for such a site.

    I will be using asp and sql server

    Many Thanks, James

    Here are my thoughts on doing this.

    1) Use cookies on the site to determine the currency and language being
    used.
    2) Number & date formating on the pages can be handled using different
    LCID settings which you can set based on the cookies
    3) Determine what you base currency will be and only store your prices in
    the products table. Have a second table to hold the conversion rates (unless
    you are using live rates) and do your conversion to the other currencies at
    run time.
    4) The sales table should be the only one where you store the Foreign
    currency amount so that you can show this on any order status page.
    5) The number of languages involved will determine whether you store the
    content in a different table, or as additional columns in the existing
    table.
