Multi language product table

Multi language product table

Hi all,
I near to build a new complex website with a multilanguage products catalogue.
I'm using PHP+MYSQL.
Previously, with ADDT I was using the Many-to-Many server behaviour to manage the products table/languages is a single update/insert form.

What is the best approach to create a multilanguage catalogue with php+mysql + data assist?

I have 3 tables:
- products
- prod-lang
- lang

The prod-lang table contains the product foreign key, the lang foreign key and other fields for product description.
When I was using the many-to-many server behaviour in a product insert/update form some extra fields were created on the fly:
- checkbox for lang1, field1_lang1, field2_lang1, field3_lang1...
- checkbox for lang2, field1_lang2, field2_lang2, field3_lang2...

For every checked checkboxe above, a new record was added to the prod-lang table.

How can I do this with WA DB?
Or better, is there a better way to manage a multilanguage product catalogue/website?

We have a manage relational table server behavior that will do this. On the insert table you just need the insert multiple rows server behavior, but on the update page you would need the manage relational table server behavior.

We have a tutorial on the topic:
