  • I think you have some misconception.

    Unicode is a generic code page that enable you to display characters in most language in single code page, thus make writing code to display multiple language simpler. It does not involve translation so you will still need a mapping/translation engine to do what you want.

  • You've listed out the options.

    If you don't care much about the accuracy of translated text, choose between the translation engines (Google, Microsoft Bing, or else) if you want to save yourself from line to line translation. If you need precise translation, go for the local resource file route. (The resource file is just XML file, that you should be able to extract the text and find others to translate.)

    If you're creating Open Source project, you may also release your translation file(s) and ask for contributors to translate it for you. (Applications like Notepad++ or BitComet, to name a few examples, goes for this route)

  • Emmm... You should be able to search it by yourself.

    Google Translate:

    Bing Translate:

    Just copy the code in "Copy the code" steps to your master page and all your pages should be served by the translator.

    Just send the resulting resx file(s) out for others (paid or not) to translate it for you.
