Globalizing Internet Websites

T. Müldner and Z. Shen (Canada)


Internet technology, internationalization


The global nature and accessibility of the Internet has generated interest in internationalization, i.e. making websites available in various languages and cultures. While the interest in internationalization is growing, up to date, not much research has been done on various aspects of this topic. In this paper, we describe a framework for creating internationalized websites. Our objectives in designing and implementing this framework include developing techniques for efficient representation and storage of source data multimedia and their translations, and support for translation reusability. The framework is implemented as an Internet based application, using XML and Java.
