For each control on a form or report that needs to be translated, a record is created containing the name of the form, the name of the control, the control type, and the English caption. Figure 3-12 shows what the data in this table looks like. When a new language is needed, a field is added to the table, and the table is exported to another Access database or a spreadsheet. This is sent to the foreign dealer or whoever has agreed to do the translation. They fill in the blanks under the new column for each control needing translation and send it back. I import it into the E-Z-MRP front end, and Bob s your uncle new language.

The language is stored as a preference (see the section Preferential Treatments earlier in this chapter) through a form in the application that looks like what you see in Figure 3-13. This language preference is stored in a local table so that, in a multiuser environment, one user could be using the system in one language, and another user could be using the system in a different language. Translations are done on the fly. When a form or report opens, one of a handful of translation subroutines is called. The form or report name is passed to the translation subroutine, and the subroutine looks at each control on the form or report, checking to see if that control name appears in the table that has the translations for the controls. If it finds a record for that control, the caption of that control is changed programmatically to the language specified by the local language preference. That s a kind of wordy description of what, you can see, is a very simple approach to translating your application. The Asian languages are a little trickier. First, they require that the users install the Windows East Asian Language support. And second, they may require you to use Unicode. But these are all trivial problems for a crack programmer like you. Right The other table the one that contains the messages is structured just a little differently, as you can see in Figure 3-14. But the principle is the same.

Figure 3-15. Multilanguage showing translations
The field fldLanguageMsgboxID is the key by which a message is retrieved. In VBA the call to display a message looks like this:
MsgboxUni Me.hWnd, TranslateMsgbox("PartAlreadyInDatabase"), , vbExclamation
The routine TranslateMsgbox looks up the message in the table using the key and passes the right translation to the message box. The ID can be a number or an abbreviation, but I choose to have rather descriptive IDs because it makes the code more self-documenting and easier to read. The ID for this message could just have easily been PAID or PM200. But looking at the code, it would have been impossible to tell what the message said. So you can see how easy it would be to add a new language. Simply add a field to the end of each of the two tables for the new language, and send it off to your translator. If you want to get fancy, you could even add a field for dialects of English British English has some different phrasing than U.S. English, and if it means more sales, then it s probably the easiest way to make your software look friendly across the pond.

International Date,Time, Number, and Currency Formatting
The two other places where your international edition will differ from your domestic release are 1) date formats and 2) currency symbol. Fortunately, both of these problems have been largely taken care of through Windows Regional and Language Options dialog box (see Figure 3-16).
