Multi Language Forms - Show and Hide

Hi

Within a form in apex has anybody used ajax/css to display fields based on a language selection?

For example be default it will just display English fields but if a user clicks on a Spanish button then both the English and Spanish fields are shown?

Not sure if this is feasible in such as dev platform such as apex?

    Showing and hiding fields in a form is possible using dynamic actions. It is actually quite easy. It can take any condition you like.

    Creating a dynamic action based on a condition is quite simple. Have you tried to do that?

    Yes I have selected from the conditions menu 'Value of Item / Column in Expression 1 = Expression 2

     

    But am unsure what needs to be entered in the expression 1 and expression 2 fields.  The reason being is at the top of the form I have a radio button with two options under the label 'Bilingual' with 2 options Yes and No

     

    If they select Yes then it will show the fields in both languages English and French  (will I have to set the condition on each item on the page for the 2nd language) or if they select No it just shows the English fields.
