    Maybe you want something out of the Gettext namespace?

      hi gskoli,

      you could create translation files :

      en.txt

      monday = monday tuesday = tuesday wednesday = wednesday thursday = thursday friday = friday saturday = saturday sunday = sunday

      fr.txt

      monday = lundi tuesday = mardi wednesday = mercredi thursday = jeudi friday = vendredi saturday = samedi sunday = dimanche

      create a function

      load_trans($lang)

      which loads the "$lang.txt" file in a hash and then use

      my %trans=load_trans('fr'); print $trans{'monday'};

      Have a nice day
