How I can have a bilingual website?

By Thelma ·
I want to do e-commerce and presently living in Tokyo, Japan. I would like to have a website with English pages and Japanese pages with just one domain name? Does anyone who can give me advises what to do and what has to be done? I am planning topurchase a website hosting from a US company and they are currently using IBM TopPage for web designing. For my merchant account, I'm going to apply it with a US company also. The question is, how can use my US merchant account on my english/japanese website?
Do I have to buy IBM TopPage japanese software and make a separate webdesigning, but with the same theme and background as my english webpage? I'm currently using Toshiba PC bilingual.

Many thanks in advance for your valuable advises.

I look forward to your reply.

Sincerely,

Thelma

How I can have a bilingual website?

Thelma,

You can have one domain name with as many languages as you like because most browsers give people the choice of the display language (I have mine looking for fr-ca, then fr, then en-ca, then en and finally en-us).

When I go to a site such as www.google.com it detects my preference and sends me a French page automatically.

This capability is built in Apache server. It is called content negotiation and includes charset.

Hope this helps.

I have also seen sites that, at the home page, give you links to follow to the English, French, etc. Each link is labelled in the appropriate language.
