My users need to have the ability to use the AS/400 in English or French. I plan to allow users to select the language when they sign on. I will use message files to display text in displays, etc. based on the selected language. What I really need is a way to convert the text from English to French. Is anyone aware of a tool that can be used to convert English to French on the AS/400?

    I have no info on translation tools/products for AS/400s. However, you might investigate web services like TranslateService. It seems possible to retrieve English message text, translate via web service to French and update corresponding messages in the French message file. I wouldn't count on it being a rapid process though. You might also load blocks of English texts into a HTML format and submit the entire page for translation through one of the web-page translators. Some means of retrieving the French text from the translated page would need to be created. Not very satisfactory, but perhaps there is some potential. If no one comes up with a tool/product suggestion, you might at least make a little progress. Tom

    The easy400.net site looks promising. I see a web-page translator reference as well as a message description translator. I got an error when attempting to link to the message translator, but I'd feel confident that the tool actually is available. Contact the web site for info. Tom
