Our website needs to support multiple languages in UTF-8 format. I'm not sure how to get the translated text in and out of MS SQL 2000. For example, I go to babelfish.altavista.com to do my own translation. I type in "Hello" and choose "English to Chinese", and it'll give me back the translation "Ã„Ã£ÂºÃƒ" (what's showing here is not the actual translation I originally got, it got converted to ascii characters). Should I store the actual translation or should I store the encoding and do the translation in Java? Can you please give an example? TIA.
