The Japanese version of my favourite tourism web site www.westernaustralia.com launched on Monday. This is the second foreign language site rolled out by the team with no less than five more sites to come (simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese, Korean, Italian, and French). The German site launched before Christmas.
I was tasked with localising the existing site using the .NET resource system last year and rolling out new language sites are now a breeze from a technical standpoint. A preliminary posting on how this was accomplished with SharePoint is soon to be followed by a follow up piece examining another huge set of issues... stay tuned (or check out my posts tagged "Resources")!
