The Rules for Developing a Multilingual Application

□ Decide early in the analysis phase the level of multilingual support that you are going to provide, then stick to it.

□ Do not include any text strings within your code. Always look them up in a table.

□ Never construct sentences by concatenating separate text strings, because the foreign language version is unlikely to use the same word order. Instead, use placeholders in your text and replace the placeholder at run time.

□ When constructing UserForms, always make the controls bigger than you need for the English text; most other languages use longer words.

□ Do not try to guess the name that Excel gives to objects that you create in code. For example, when creating a new workbook, the first sheet will not always be "Sheet1".
