Thanks very much Jason.
The part that I didn't have an example of was the appropriate javascript
call:
<a href=3D"javascript:setLanguage('fr-CA');">Fran=E7ais</a>

It's working.  Thanks for your quick reply.

Debbie

Debbie,

Along with the required SharedResource Declaration you will have to add=20
the following lines just before you initialize the application=20
index.phtml.  Here's an example:

$oApp =3D  new MapApp(); // this is the class in index.phtml which extends

the Chameleon class
$oApp->CWCAddRegionalTemplate( "en-CA", "mymap_en.html");
$oApp->CWCAddRegionalTemplate( "fr-CA", "mymap_fr.html");
$oApp->CWCInitialize( $szTemplate, $szMapFile  );

This assumes that you have created mymap_en.html and mymap_fr.html.

To switch over, for example, from an English to French template you=20
would add a link in your english template similar to:

<a href=3D"javascript:setLanguage('fr-CA');">Fran=E7ais</a>

The MLT should handle translation between English and French for the=20
widgets you are using.

I believe this should do it.

Jason
