    Hi,
    The general strategy is to store the Text in Labels / Buttons in a XML file (pre-written) and fetch them as per the language setting. This is the common technique used in all cases sceanrios.

    Say for example, you have three labels on your stage with texta HELLO, GREETINGS and THANKYOU.
    Then you need to create a file ( basic text or XML ) like this
    Eng - HELLO , GREETINGS, THANKYOU
    Fr - BONJOUR, SALUTATIONS, THANKYOU
    Spanish - HOLA, SALUDOS ,GRACIAS

    Having stored these values in a text file ( this is pre-compiled), you need to fetch these values depending on the language chosen and feed them to Label's .text value

    Hi,

    I guess you want to localize your Flash Lite content to support different languages besides English.
    You can read this article which describes what you may need - http://www.adobe.com/devnet/devices/articles/bi_directional_text_02.html.
