    I am almost in the final stage of my evaluation of sitefinity. I love this CMS software. I got stuck at a point of language translation. I have created few control and modules. Now my requirement is that I want to provide a easy way of translating this various labels dynamically or through some interface so that any non-programmer can provide the translation string.  I can not expose this label as control property because in that case each instance of control will have different language translated value and it will be overwhelmed  task to go and modify each instances.

    Is there any simple way that I can provide a simple interface for language translation or could you suggest any approach to this so that different language translator guy can provide the translated string without actually involving programmer.

    I will greatly appreciate any help in this regard,

    Hello Vikas Bhalotia,

    We will have this feature out of the box in Sitefinity 4.0. There is no such implementation in 3.x versions.
    You could create a backend view from where you set the desired values. These values will be persisted in XML file. Then your modules and control will read and parse this XML to get the common data. This will ensure that you will have only one place from where your controls and modules will be localized.
