BabelKit Version 1.06 released 2003.05.07. BabelKit is an interface to a universal multilingual database code table. BabelKit takes all of the programming work out of maintaining multiple database code definition sets in multiple languages. The code administration and translation page lets you define new virtual code tables, new languages, enter all codes and their descriptions and then translate them into all languages of interest. Perl and PHP classes retrieve the code descriptions and automatically generate HTML code selection elements in the user's language. This makes internationalization and localization of web sites and database interfaces much easier. The home page contains live multilanguage demos. For news and updates visit the BabelKit home page: For a simpler unilingual universal code table visit the CodeKit home page: Setup: 1. Read doc/bk_overview.html and doc/bk_schema.html first. Get your universal code table schema and sample data loaded. 2. See doc/bk_setup_perl.html and doc/bk_setup_php.html for Perl and PHP source code setup instructions.
