Changing culture or UI culture doesn't change page contents RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-703432812 posted

    Hi,

    I have a dual-language site (English/Slovakian).  I would like to test that the translations on the page are working correctly without having to run the project.

    Surely if I set the UI culture or culture setting on the page, it should pull the correct translations out of the appropriate .resx file.

    However, even when I set the culture to sk-SK instead of en-GB on the page, I still see the english text in the page in preview mode.

    I know this works ok when I run the project (in the code I switch languages on the current thread), but there are certain error messages I want to see translated ok, instead of having to run through all the possible error paths. 

    Any ideas?

    AFAIK changing the document culture properties will not help unless you change the culture of the currently executing thread.

    Hope this helps,

    I am changing it in the Document properties in the Properties box inside Visual Studio.

    Ok I kind of gathered that too, I just thought it would be useful if I could see the translated page somehow in design/preview mode.
