localization and internationalization - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

We have a dilemma, and I hope you can help me out. We are doing business on an international level, and need our cold fusion pages to translate the English information into a locale. Currently, we are using mysql with a jdbc driver because it supports utf-8 encoding. However, we are also paying people to do the translations and putting that into locale tables in the database. Does cold fusion allow for the translation of such information when it is pulled from the database, base upon what the machine specific locale is? For example, we have everything in U.S. English ...

    Default localization and internationalization

    We have a dilemma, and I hope you can help me out. We are doing business on an
    international level, and need our cold fusion pages to translate the English
    information into a locale. Currently, we are using mysql with a jdbc driver
    because it supports utf-8 encoding. However, we are also paying people to do
    the translations and putting that into locale tables in the database. Does
    cold fusion allow for the translation of such information when it is pulled
    from the database, base upon what the machine specific locale is? For example,
    we have everything in U.S. English format. We only want to have the U.S.
    English version in the database, and have cold fusion do the translation as it
    queries and pulls that information out.



    If you could get back in touch with me asap, that would be great, as this is
    very urgent.



    Sincerely,

    Default Re: localization and internationalization

    if you mean will cf do machine translations for you, "no". if you mean can you
    use machine translations via cf, "yes" (but i wouldn't recommend machine
    translations for anything of any value).

    is that what you meant?
