Why are you looking at views? Views are an indevelopment feature and 
have nothing to do (directly) with i18n.

Search the user archives [1], all these questions, and more are answered 
in recent discussions here. In particular you may like to look for 
threads in whic Helena has participated, she has done much work on 
pulling together the various bits of knowledge we have.

If, after reading the archives, you have any specific questions about 
how to achieve stuff we will be better positioned to help you, but 
general questions like those above are very difficult to answer in the 
limited time the volunteers here have.
