Multi-language site and physical hierarchy

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Mike Gleason jr Couturier, Mar 28, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    I'm a little bit familiar with site cultures and ressources with .NET 2.0.
    However, I'm wondering how this following scenario could be achieved:

    My site supports 2 cultures (fr, en). The site's physical structure is in
    english. But to be more search engine friendly, when the site is displayed
    in french, the directory structure ideally must be in french (not
    http://test.com/friend/delete.aspx but http://test.com/ami/effacer.aspx). Is
    there a technique to achieve this without duplicating the entire site?
    (virtual directories? ... )

    Thank you very much!

    Mike

  3. URL Rewriting is one option (mapping the french name to the English page).
    You use an HTTP handler to do this:
    http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms972974.aspx

    MVC also provides another option, although the MVC Framework is not gold
    code yet. It does contain a Go Live license on the current download (MIX
    2008). You will generally want to download both the ASP.NET Extensions and
    the MVC Framework:

    Extensions: http://tinyurl.com/2glz42
    MVC Framework: http://tinyurl.com/2breds

    I think I'll go with the URL rewrite method!
