  • Hello Emily,

    I find advantages and disadvantages of satellite assemblies.


    1. You can incrementally add resources for new cultures after you have deployed an application. Because subsequent development of culture-specific resources can require a significant amount of time, this allows you to release your main application first, and deliver culture-specific resources at a later date.
    2. You can update and change an application's satellite assemblies without recompiling the application.
    3. An application needs to load only those satellite assemblies that contain the resources needed for a particular culture. This can significantly reduce the use of system resources.


    1. You must manage multiple sets of resources.
    2. The initial cost of testing an application increases, because you must test several configurations. Note that in the long term it will be easier and less expensive to test one core application with several satellites, than to test and maintain several parallel international versions.
