Multi-Lingual UI??

Hi all -

Has anyone investigated what it might take to implement a multi-lingual user interface for a Tackle installation? For example, some users see English, others see (say) German, etc. etc., with appropriate locale settings, etc.

I see the localization toolkit, but that seems to be focused on establishing a single locale for the entire site.

Thanks,

I was going to suggest different instances of the web site setup for each culture, but pointing to the same database however the db and web site really need to match to avoid date conflicts so not sure if that'd actually work.

Thanks, Sean. Yes, I think that wouldn't work.
What I think would be needed is to have the system choose a resource assembly based on some request/session property dynamically, and present the UI based on its contents. I'm not familiar enough with the technologies in use to know how hard that would be to do.

Plus, I don't think it's an absolute necessity; I was just curious if it had been investigated/attempted.
