How can I keep a shared profile for more than one database?

How can I keep a shared profile for more than one database?

I have developed a learning Web application that consists of six Notes databases. Recently, when I needed to support the application with one more language, the users selected their preference language before they entering the application. As a result, I need to keep that value once the user selected their preference language. I try to keep the value in a profile document in one of the databases, but when it navigates to another database, I cannot get the value anymore! Any suggestions?
On the form where the user selects the preferred language you use the WebQuerySave-event to activate an agent. This LotusScript agent loops through all six databases and sets the profile document in each. This would probably require the least changes of your code.
