    hi, I am trying to create a multi language web application. I have set the culture="pa-IN" and the uiCulture="pa-IN". Now I have typed some text in simple html tags(

    ) and I have placed a calender control on the wep page. When I run the application, I am able to see the calender control contents(month & days name) changing to the culture selected, but the normal html contents didn't change, they are visible in english. What can I do in this case? Regards, Royal

    hi Gautam, I had posted this preoblem only after doing some search on this issue. In every search, people explained about localization in respect to controls whereas I was looking for some pure plain text(text in a paragraph) conversion from english to an Indian language. If I use resource file than I think I will be displaying this text on some control then I'll have to write its local language version in resource file. But suppose I have 30 pages in my application and all the pages carry 1000 or more words on each page. So do I have to write everything in my resource file? And Gautam, if you are having forums in your application then how can you handle that through resource files? Regards, Royal
