    Hi Vikram,

    You need to use Input Method Editors (IMEs) to enter specific locale characters. Or you can do what I did in this article:

    I used Hindi- Unicode website which gave me unicode characters for each hindi character. Then you can feed these unicode characters in the resx files.

    Hope this helps,

    Vivek

    The forums for this site are for ASP.NET, the web development technology part of the .NET Framework.  For Windows applications, check out the Windows Forms forums on MSDN Forums.

    Hi

     This is a question related to Visual Studio IDE and not Windows application. My question is how do I type the Chinese letter in the resource file in the visual studio IDE.

    Thanks
