    Hello All


    I am trying to localize my wesbite from English to Spanish. The website is built in Spanish. I have done such work perfectly in a html website but i do not have experience with .net localization. I know only Resource files are need to be translated.

    Any useful information guys! :)


    Kind Regards

    Okay.. I googled and went through the forum. I saw something about .resx resource files. Let me tell you what I have: 

    1. I have .aspx pages of complete wesbite.

    <asp:Label ID="EmpNameLabel" runat="server" Text="<%$ Resources: EmpNameLabelText %>"></asp:Label>

    <asp:Label ID="EmpNameLabel" runat="server" Text="<%$ Resources: EmpNameLabelText %>"></asp:Label>

    used instead of:

    <asp:Label ID="EmpNameLabel" runat="server" Text="Employee Name"></asp:Label>


    2. I have professional translators and I am not using Google API's.

    3. A little bit of .net C# knowledge.


    Can you guys help me!


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, besides resources files with all content translated, you'll need some logic if you want change for a language to another and to preserve this choice in all pages, for example,

    String lang = Request.QueryString["lang"];
                    UICulture = lang;
                    // Culture = lang;
                    // Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture(lang);
                    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo(lang);
                    HttpCookie cookie = new HttpCookie("langinfo");
                    cookie.Value = lang;

    and set the culture in web.config, so date, currency are presented in spanish background,

    hope this help!
