The script I use to create the tables and insert the data already allows for
the use of a prefix. Meaning that I could create the exact same tables
inside the same database with different prefixes. This, however, is not
ideal since when I develop a website, I initially develop it fully in one
language, then I simply duplicate the database and change the text, this
method saves me allot of time since all texts, stylesheets, templates, etc,
etc are copied.
If I where to use the script again and create the initial tables with a new
prefix, I would have to go through the whole process of developing the site
(obviously easier than initial devl. but still time consuming). Therefore I
figured the easiest way would be to simply duplicate the tables and change
I am now thinking that probably the best way to accomplish this is through a
PHP script. In any case i'd like to thank you for your prompt replies, this
little brainstorming has definitely given me some ideas.
