I'm working on a redesign project for a site that's currently bilingual (English/Russian.) Eventually it's to be expanded to other languages. Does anyone know of any really good examples of sites in multiple languages? Any guidelines or best practices to consult?

TIA

Hi Tia,

I'm currently working on an English/Russian site that runs on the Django framework. I've found that the biggest struggle is the length of the Russian text. Often there are 3x as many characters in Russian, for an English equivelent. This has been especially challenging when it came to menu items and titles.

Good luck,
