Collection strings together for language translation.

P: n/a
I notice that although the .NET scheme for creating multi-language
applications is generally very good (from the programmers point of view), it
seems to be lacking in one important respect: there doesn't seem to be any
way I can collect together all string literals and/or form resource files in
a manner that a translator (without visual studio or knowledge of it) can
interpret the translated strings! In ye olde days, we had a single string
table and the translator would use Excel or something to write in the
translations, which would be automatically loaded by our resource manager.
How can I achieve a similar thing with VS.NET? I don't want to have to send
the source code to the translator! (note: I have a resource.xml file, that
contains most of my literals, which I load at runtime for message boxes and
the like, I'm talking here about translation of form resources).
Thanks.

Robin,

We agree completly

See this page
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...reseditor_.asp

And open this directory on your system

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\SDK\v1.1\Samples\Tutorials\resourcesandlocali zation

After doing that, than as I said, we agree completly

:-)
