Storing Multiple Languages in a DB

Recommended Posts

I am going to create a site that will have content written in English, French, Italian and German

Is there anything I need to consider for storing this information in a database? or other considerations I should be aware of?

Consider using UTF-8 as the character set.

is that something I do with the database .. or just as a meta tag in html?

That's the character set you want to have as the default on every MySQL table you create. Once it's set as the default for a table, you won't have to worry about it when you pull or store values.
