As a courtesy to fellow developers and potential clients, the
following demonstration file is provided for free download.

As described in the FileMaker Pro 9 Bible (Chapter 10 - Building Advanced Interfaces), this demo illustrates an efficient technique for providing support for multiple languages in the interfaces of your FileMaker Pro databases.

Excerpt from Chapter 10 (p356, Example - a multi-lingual solution interface):

"...Although we've seen a number of methods used to create multi-lingual interfaces, most of them require many additional relationships; some stop working when the user enters Find mode and may make working in Layout mode a chore. Here is a method that avoids these problems.

The technique we recommend entails some extra work during development, but after it's in place, providing support for additional languages requires only an additional record in the language resource table. The technique adds two tables to your solution, but they don't have to be related to anything else (just to each other), and no other relationships are required. Moreover field labels remain reasonably compact and intelligible in Layout mode."

For additional detailed notes about implementation of this technique, refer to the pp356--358 of the FileMaker Pro 9 Bible.

This demo file is unlocked and password-free, compliments of NightWing Enterprises.
