Tips wanted - translating website from English to another language dynamically. Can't Post

Hi all.
You seem a knowledgeable bunch, so I wondered if you had some ideas for me. I'm after the elegant and/or industry-standard way to do this:

I have a site which has three sub-domains, each running essentially the same stuff from the same code, but each for a different 'customer'. The problem is, one of the sub-domains is for a Norwegian group, and the chap running it is keen for it to be in Norwegian (apparently some of them are too lazy to learn English Wink). What I want to do is to give users a selection of flags to click on to select their language, which is stored as a cookie (easy enough so far).

Where it becomes tricky is generating the content. I don't want to translate each script manually (or rather, I don't want my Norwegian chum to do so) - I'd rather find a way of translating it online, one phrase at a time (by clicking a link in situ?).

I have some really poor ideas for this, but I thought I'd ask the question before barking any louder up the wrong tree.

Thanks!!! Smile

Maybe something like this:

http://www.digitalriver.com/dr/v2/ec_MAIN.Entry10?V1=641957&PN=2&SP=10023&xid=28102

but you won't find Norwegian support, probably Dutch or Swedish.

Thanks, Kevin, but I'm after something server-side to do the job. I suppose my starting point is just to find out how the professionals put up sites using a choice of languages. If it's just writing two or more sets of code I won't be happy! I'm hoping for a neat Perl magic trick.
