One of our Clients wants their web site translated into a variety of
languages: French, Italian, German, Dutch, Japanese, Czech, Russian and

Whilst we can probably get the physical translations done, does anyone have
any experience and advice on how to get the translated material incorporated
into a web site?

The problems I perceive are with the Cyrillic and Japanese character sets -
I'd hate to get a Word document, for instance, and then lose the characters
in the copying process.

Secondly, if I'm using specified fonts in CSS, do I need to have a different
stylesheet/font/character set specified per language?

All help gratefully received.
