Content translation depending on the location

Former Member

I have got a requirement.When a user enters into the portal through internet, i want to change the entire content of the portal depending upon the location. And also the Portal Admin Should get the location of the entered user

i.e; when a user enters from germany, the entire content of the portal should be displayed to him in German(without the user clicking any link).Here in this case the Portal Admin should get the location of the user as Germany.

It would be very helpful to me, if anyone can throw some light on this

Thanks in advance,

As far as I am aware you can only do this through the locale, as opposed to the physical location, as this isn't part of the Http request. If you use the locale then you can use the standard portal translation functionality. By doing this you can change all of the PCD Objects so that they are translated to the relevant language. Also, when creating the content you could use the Java resource bundles, as you would then create a resource bundle for each language you would like to have displayed.

I hope this helps a little
