I am writing an application in vb.net using a mysql database.
I need it to be multilingual.
I have not found much useful info on this so I thought I 'd go ahead and work it out myself.
I have started making a translation table in the mysql database consisting of the fields id, description, lang1, lang2
I would then use the proper language column according to the configuration. Not too hard upto this point.
I was wondering if there is a good reason NOT to use the database, but in stead use plain text files. A good reason would be speed for example.
anyone any thoughts on this?
