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

For news and updates visit the BabelKit home page:

For a simpler unilingual universal code table visit
the CodeKit home page:


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.
