Same store, two themes for multilingual purposes

Hello,

So I have a Site ABC, The user can select their language to proceed on the index page; say English or Arabic. Based on this preference the theme would dynamically change but the content would be from one database.

The main difference between the themes is the addition of the dir tag in HTML as well different images. Ideas?

Thank You

Just create a new site, and use the same database, no problem there. The only issue is when adding products, the images will be located at only one shop, but you can ftp stream them to the other shop.

Hmm, interesting idea. So I should create a subdirectory with a second installation of Prestashop and go from there? A little redundant I must say. I was thinking something along the lines of what Rocky suggested here: http://www.prestashop.com/forums/viewthread/49004/#216508 But maybe add .htaccess into the mix. I'll certainly use this if there is no other way.

Thanks a lot for your input!
