You're a bit out of luck then.
Both Squeak and GemStone support only one locale per image. This is
most certainly not what you want for a web application.
Regarding various locale items like number formatting, currency symbol
that should be supported on Gemstone but not Squeak. If you look a
Squeak's locale class, it has all the necessary functionality but it
is not implemented. I think this is fixed in none of the Squeak forks.
The OLPC Squeak fork supports gettext but you'd have to rip that out
and port it yourself. Else you'll have to build you own translation
You might want to ask on glass-beta for more concrete information
about the situation on GemStone.
Afaik only the latest VW 7.6 should do what you need, I don't know
about GST and Dolphin though.
