I have read this: http://blog-en.icanlocalize.com/installing-wordpress-for-multiple-language-blogs/how-to-localize-wordpress-themes-and-plugins-with-gettext/

Right now, I have qTranslate installed because I could not find a way to "Trigger" to switch to fr_FR. I use qTranslate to "switch" by using http://mysite.com/page?lang=fr

So, the question is, how do you "trigger" the switch to another language without manually doing the following: define ('WPLANG', 'fr_FR');?

Best Regards, W

Thank you for pointing this out. I will work on this tomorrow. I see that "example 2" will probably work for me. – wenbert Jun 22 '11 at 16:09
