Bilingual Button


From: Moore,Michael (Accessibility) (HHSC)

We have a web application that presents bilingual forms (English/Spanish) that is currently missing any language attributes. My preference would be to have a user select a language then have all of the information presented in the persons chosen language. What may help me get there is that the buttons used to submit information are also bilingual and I do not believe that there is a valid method for properly indicating two separate languages within the same button. Example: <input type="submit" value="Submit/Guardar" />. So is it possible to create a single button that will have correct language attributes for two languages?
