Hi. friend.
I am working on hotel management project in
I have one drop down list to display currency name so user can change hotel rate in different currency by selecting value from drop down list.

Now, my client wants to have items in drop down list in different language. For example, If there is Indian rupees then it should be displayed in Hindi language. if there is Japanese yen then it should be displayed in Japanese language.

Simply what I did that I open Google and translate Indian Rupees in Hindi and copy that Hindi text and paste in drop down item and it works fine but I doubt that if someone browser doesn't not support Hindi language then it will not work.

So what I have to do for this kind of requirement? Should I use globalization or localization to create resx for different languages?

If I do so everyone browser supports?

Please guide me right path or any suggestion would be helpful to me.

If a browser does not support unicode then sorry, that won't work and to the extent of my knowledge, there is nothing to make it work unless it were an image.

Having said that, IIRC I read somewhere that the overwhelming majority of browsers these days support unicode so you're clear there.

A quick test, can you see the following:

English: Imran Khan
Arabic: عمران خان

Assuming you don't have Arabic or Urdu installed, if you can see the Arabic text (it transliterates Imran Khan :)) then you're fine.
