QUESTION

I have enabled Translations, with languages English and Russian. I have made one Custom Label and added a Russian translation. I have added that Custom Label to my Force.com Site. What do I need to change in Salesforce to view the Russian translation of that Custom Label in my Force.com Site?

I have tried changing the Locale and Language of Force.com Site Site Guest User but it did not work.

Changing my language to Russian and viewing the VisualForce page as /apex/PageName did work - it translated the label into Russian, but that is not what I want. I.e., This is viewing the Visualforce page as ADMIN; I want to know how to achieve the same (view the Russian translation) when viewing the Force.com Site as an unauthenticated user.

ANSWER

<apex:page sidebar="true" showHeader="false" language="ru">

The language parameter of the page decides language.

Make a getter setter variable in the controller and use userinfo to get the language or through the query and populate on the language parameter.

http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/pages/Content/pages_compref_page.htm

This method works but still need to investigate more on why for unauthenticated user it's weird! Please try in different browser where only unauthenticated user is accessing page.
