Is a UTF-8 support necessary to display translated messages
in single language (like French, or Japanese)?
I know UTF-8 can handle and display several language charactorsets
all at once, but I don't need it.
I need just switching languages of all messages in display.
I think it can be implemented as a message lookup mechanism.
In the GNU gettext mechanism, gettext() function looks up
a message catalog file (it is external resource file),
and if a translated message is found,
gettext() function returns a translated string.
For example, gettext("Hello") returns "Konnichiwa"
as Japanese charactor string, so
| printf( gettext("Hello") );
in Japanese environment.
This can be implemented under VB?
