Multilanguage Multicurrency WebTools
I am having an issue one of my clients, they need webtools to be set up in multiple languages and currency's
How do i go about this?
i have succesfully created my ENGLISH CANADIAN website.
I now have to create an ENGLISH UNITED STATES website as well as a FRENCH CANADIAN website.
Should i create a new instance in webtools ex: B1WebTools, B1WebTools_US, B1WebTools_FR.
The US and canadian websites are exact replicas except for the currency.
The enlglish and french are exactly the same except the language.
If anyone can offer some insight id be more than happy to hear your opinions. Points will be distributed accordingly
Thank you Very much

Officially, we do not support non-English versions and SAP does not provide translations for the UI and there is no support for multi-currency.
Having said that, there are facilities to create your own translation if you want to put in the work.
To create a translation, there are 4 basic steps:
1. Create a new theme and set the cultural encoding to your desired culture.
2. Use the string editor to update the UI strings. The string editor is the button next to the help button above the sliding menu in admin. The interface is hopefully simple enough for you to figure out.
3. Use the theme editor to translate any text that is in the theme.
4. Update the translations that are data driven. These include translations of item descriptions and data in the dropdowns (among others). If you get this far, post again and I will provide a list of all of these.
As for multi-currency, this feature is currently under development and will be in SP1, which will hopefully be available in the spring.
