Subject: language pack – dynamic translation contextual menu based on user
Date: Tue, 13 Feb 2007 03:53:00 -0800
I have installed successfully a language pack for a MOSS 2007 installation. Now I am able to create sites in another language with all contextual menus translated automatically. How should I achieve that the contextual menus are translated based on the language preferences of the user? Because now, or a site is in language A or in language B. The contextual menus are not translated automatically based on the user preferences.

The context menus are not translated. The site built in a language is built from the templates installed for that language. If you want users to automatically go to the language version of the site depending upon the language preference of their browser, you need to use variations.
Variation hierarchies start with empty sites so this should be done before you start building out your sites.
Here are two whitepapers by Luca Bandinelli:
