Hi There, What’s the best strategy for making a truly multi-lingual WP theme.

For example, somewhere there should be a config setting to select or add supported languages. Then each page (and perhaps even post) should have a direct counterpart in each of the selected languages.

I’m done this in more advanced ‘enterprise’ style systems and I’ve got about 3 different ways I can think of to do it in WP but I’m interested in peoples opinions as to what the ‘best’ way of doing it is?

Thanks very much indeed!

This is the best way: http://wpml.org/

EDIT : That’s the best way if you are doing it for your website, if you were thinking of implementing that in a commercial project, than I am not sure.
