ASP.NET AJAX Localization Slides and Code

Filed under: AJAX, ASP.NET AJAX, Localization — Tags: , , , — Joel Rumerman @ 9:38 pm

A while back I promised a three-part series on ASP.NET AJAX Localization. I wrote Part 1, but wasn’t entirely happy with the way it turned out; primarily because I was still learning Localization. I’ve been chugging along with writing my ASP.NET AJAX Control Book since then with a couple of posts on a JavaScript Stack Trace and a JavaScript Error Publishing Control since that first post, and haven’t really gotten back to finish the promised Part 2 and Part 3.

Well, I’m not really sure when I’m going to get back to writing the full posts, but I recently put together a slide deck and some code examples on ASP.NET AJAX Localization for a presentation at work. I’m pretty happy with the way they turned out so I thought I’d post them and let anybody take a look at it.

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
