How do I use localization? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User371911926 posted

    I have been reading alot about localization but none of it is making any since.

    I want to build a web applicaiton that can change the text of all the strings depending on what language the viewer wants to use.

    In community server they are using a XML file for all the resources, but in the articles I've found they have been telling me to use the resgen tool to generate binary resource files.

    Which of these methods is a better solution? Which one would be faster?

    Can someone point me to some usefull information about how to make a sample applicaiton that uses localization?

    I have been reading this article but its not helping. I completed the example and its giving me run-time errors.

    I want to use a seperate file, either resx or XML to store the string data.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Update: I have found all the information I need in a programming text book. I have everything working now.

    I would still like to get some opinions on what is a better source for a resource file. Should I use the binary resgen files or should I use standard XML files? I assume that the binary files would be a lot faster then the XML file.
