Internet Explorer Multiple-Language API Application Development

Windows Mobile 6.5
A version of this page is also available for

The global scope of the Internet poses a variety of international and multilingual challenges for Web developers.

The Windows Mobile operating system offers Multiple Language (Mlang) support of varying degrees of functionality. The minimal implementation provides applications with the IMultiLanguage interface. Charset and encoding information are located in the resource file, rather than in the system registry. A more full-featured implementation supports all of the MLang interfaces. Charset and encoding information can be located either in the resource file or the system registry. For information about the level of MLang support in your run-time image, see the SDK documentation specific to the functionality added to your OS design.

The MLang API topics provide an overview of MLang functionality and its objects, interfaces, and methods. Knowledge of Component Object Model (COM) programming is assumed.
