Resource file editable by client RRS feed

  • Question

  • User181607974 posted

    I am planning out a new project and one of the requirements will be multiple languages. I have heard how resource files are used to do this but I have not yet used them in my career so this is probably a bit of a basic question.

    I am developing a content management system for the website so the client can make their own changes.

    My question: is it possible to edit the resource file from a form on the page?

    Normally I would have the text / page content stored in a database table which I can call into a form, the client makes a change and then gets saved back. It is my understanding that the contents of a resource file cannot be called in the same way, so is there a way to call up the information or should I stick to a traditional database with columns for each language?

    Many thanks,

    Resource files are XML files so they can be edited on form. They have their pros and cons. 

    In my opinion, what you say traditional way, stick to that. thats more maintainable.
