I have a button created on my menu that says Buy Now. I have three other langauges installed on my site in which I would like to show this button but translated.

This is what I have in the header.ascx file

<div id="Buynow"><a class="tiny green-apple rox_short_button" href="/BuyNow!/tabid/602/language/en-US/Default.aspx"> Buy Now! </a></div>

So what I would like to do is create a java script within this file that uses a case statement to select the correct button for the language selected. This what I have but I am not using the correct DNN Language variable .

<script type="text/javascript"> 

                           

  switch (LANGUAGE){

  case "en-us":

<div id="Buynow"><a class="tiny green-apple rox_short_button" href="/BuyNow!/tabid/602/language/en-US/Default.aspx"> Buy Now! </a></div>

break;

case "es-mx": 

  <div id="Buynow"><a class="tiny green-apple rox_short_button" href="/BuyNow!/tabid/602/language/en-US/Default.aspx">Comprar ahora!</a></div>

  break;

  }

</script>   

 

What variable should I use to pull the language that is selected?

If you are actually editing an .ascx file you can avoid using the JavaScript and case statement and instead utilize the platform's localization, just have the text value in your header.ascx.resx. An Example: 

<%= Localization.GetString("UnsubscribeAll", LocalResourceFile) %>

Thats exactly what I was looking for. I am able to show the Default text but ti isn't displaying the translated text when I switch languages.

This is what I have


And I have a resource file in the APP_LocalResources for the other languages.

Not sure why they are not displaying the translated text.
