It was a pain in the derriere in HyperCard where there is only one
background per card. It can only be worse in Revolution.
I believe the recommended approach to translation is to use the
Profile Manager to preconfigure each control for each language
supported. I personally do not use this approach because I want my
app to be translatable into any (Western) language, not just those it
FYI, the Serendipity Reference includes a short primer on stack
translatability in the appendix, and the Serendipity Library includes
translation tools + examples...but no handler to inventory your
