Language Selector

I have a specific requirement

I want to give the user the option to select language from available options that are applicable for a country.

The user should be able to select any available language and also be able to change the language if wanted.

E.g. Lang_Table:

Country             Language

Russia               English

Russia               Russian

China                 Mandarin

China                 Wu

China                  Jin

India                     English

India                    Hindi

India                     Tamil

I don't want the user to even see the language of other country in the drop down.

Any ideas???

see attachment for my idea

It uses OSUser and a trigger on the sheet.

Another option could be to use section access.

Yes this is right but not what I was looking for.

The users may have access to more than one country but when a country is selected only languages from that country should be visible.

Also 'hide excluded' does not serve the purpose as it hides the other languages for that country once a language is selected.

Any other solution!!!

You need to create a table, which has the language and the corresponding name for each item, which you would like to translate, like

Language, Title_Form1, Title_Form2, Name_Expression1, .....

Then also each object's descriptive elements need to refer to these Fields.

Selection of the language as proposed above (via Access), else it might be made by buttons within the application.
