The construction of multilingual web sites is probably the best answer to addressing the problem of the diverse cultural background of the Internet community. However, developing multiple instances of the same site in different languages induces increased overhead for both the implementation and the maintenance phase. The paper reviews current techniques and describes an alternative to constructing multilingual web sites, which eases the development and maintenance phases, without possessing any of the drawbacks of existing tools. The paper concludes proposing possible future enhancements.
