Well, this is what I am trying to do:

I would like to submit one application, intended for several markets, for NSTL TBT tests. Due to the nature of the different markets I would like to have the application in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

Well, I have different strings and images in separate .BAR files and the correct .BAR file which corresponds with the language that is used on the handset is being used.

However, the name of the application should also be different. As the name appears in the .MIF files, to support several languages I do need seperate .MIF files. Can this be done in a single submission or do I have to submit separately for each languages?

thanks,
Krishna

In your case you will have to run it as a set of separate submissions. Unless you REALLY have to separate apps, you should make sure to keep things for foreign language versions all together in one app. In your case your application name kills you because NSTL/Qualcomm is simply not prepared for this. An app has one name - and thus also only one MIF file, no matter what according to their setup.

If you could talk to Verizon guys, they would tell you they want for each language separate app.

I don't think so, my friend.

Verizon wants separate app for separate language (one for Spanish, one for English). Isn't that in line with what you said too, Dragon?
:confused:
When I talked last time to VZW guys, they said: "Spanish? Separate app, please."

No, it is not in line with what I said.
I create all my apps so that they are multi-lingual and that's that. Never has anyone asked me to make separate apps for separate languages. I wouldn't even accommodate it even if it were asked for, because it would be a complete waste of money and time getting them all certified separately just because a couple of hundred bytes of ASCII text differ between the versions.

So, same MIF file for Spanish and English?
I was asked by VZW, a 9 months back to submit separate apps for English and Spanish (not one multilingual app). Would they now take one multilingual app?

You may have misunderstood them. What they want you to do is submit them separately to their develoepr website. This has nothing to do with the certification and it means that you simply create two submissions for the same application - one of them selecting English as the language and one selecting Spanish as the primary language.
This is because the Verizon guys who handle the Spanish SKUs are different from those who handle the English SKUs, and they will only look at the submissions that have been submitted with Spanish language.
Again, this has nothing to do with the certification and is only a Verizon Develoepr submission specific thing on THEIR website.
