I've noticed in templates that I can use $Lang to output the current language. I'm trying to use this in a conditional statement such as:
<% if "$Lang" == "en" %>
<& end_if %>
I get the error:
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Line Number 137, Column 6: <% if "en" == "en" %>
Is there a correct way to check for this?

Drop the quotes and the $

I tried that as well. It produced a different kind of error.
I was able to find a solution by using parts of the Multilingual Content recipe. I used two parts of step two. The first code block was used, I skipped the custom class "MultiLingual" entirely, and in the third block, I changed "$lang = MultiLingual::currentLang();" to "$lang = Translatable::current_lang();". The last step was to make sure my French custom field names ended in '_fr'.
From what I've found in my research here, it seems like quite a hack job to try and have a multilingual web site when it comes to custom fields in classes. Unless, of course, I'm doing something terribly wrong.

Is there a way to display custom includes evaluating the current language?
I find this very difficult to do, and since i'm not a programmer, all that i've tried was messing up the layout or giving me errors...
If anyone can post here a way to evaluate the language inside the .ss files to include another, that would be great !
Thanks in advance,

I am not a SS guru. Few weeks ago decided to build a site form my client with SS. I also needed this and with some try-and-see, found the solution.
<% if Locale == en_US %>
Here is the english text.
<% end_if %>
You can do this for other locales..
