    Yes Michael. I meant multi-lingual images/logos, hyperlinks and tooltips in the skin? (Like the non-text fields in the mark-up)

    When you switch on ContentLocalization (see below), the site logo and some other settings are per language, allowing you to set a different logo per language.

    For content you can use either a translatable module (a module that renders language specific content, like Open Content) or you can use Content Localization.
    This also allows the generation of a page per language (where the translated pages are internally linked to the default language page).

      For a multi-lingual link in the skin... well, I would use a Text/HTML module in a special pane and display it on all pages (there is a little checkbox in the module settings...). That's what Timo means with "Content Localization". Another way would be to write a special skin object for that.

      For the logo, Timo already answered this.

      Happy DNNing!

        Whoa... I told you I used to know this stuff!  Timo just prompted me to resurrect (and fix) my outdated article about the Text theme object.  It's now in the blog area on this website:

          For localized images, you get your site logo and icon localized. For each page you also get a small and big image for the page level you can leverage. Then I would consider the reset content and not bake links and stuff in the theme, structured content like 2sxc and others could be a solution. An html module that shows on all pages is another way. Resx files are text based, so you could technically store links to images or have html in them but it is harder to maintain IMO in that context and you would have to use David's proposed solution for some of this if it really needs to be in the theme.
