Using Localization in ASP.NET AJAX (Part 1) : Using Localization in ASP.NET

Filed under: AJAX, ASP.NET AJAX — Tags: , , , — Joel Rumerman @ 9:29 pm

I’ve been learning about Localization in ASP.NET AJAX and I’m not a big fan of the resources that are currently available so I thought I would write down my thoughts in the hopes that other people might find them useful. It looks like this will be a three part series on Localization in ASP.NET Ajax and this first entry will be about localization in ASP.NET without the Ajax portion.

Part 1: How to localize an application in ASP.NET

Edit: After writing this post, I found an excellent resource on the basics of localization in ASP.NET. Rick Strahl, a resource for many in the .NET Community and co-publisher of CoDe magazine, wrote an excellent article a while back on Localization: Introduction to Localization in ASP.NET 2.0. While I’m glad that I went through the process of writing this article and I believe that some of my insights come from a different angle than Rick’s, if you’re just starting out with Localization, his article is a must read.

Another decent resource is ASP.NET 2.0 Localization Features: A Fresh Approach to Localizing Web Applications

Part 2: How to localize JavaScript using static JavaScript files

Part 3: How to localize ASP.NET AJAX using embedded resources
