As business becomes more and more global, software developers, managers and architects increasingly need to make applications multi-lingual and culturally aware. This book helps anyone working with .NET development approach projects with this in mind, providing ample tips and tools for making the end-product truly global.
Chapter 3: An Introduction to Internationalization
As the name implies, this chapter makes for a good starting point; get an overview of the terminology, basic formats, processes, resources and everything else you need to get started on the right foot. The examples are based on a Windows Forms application using Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework 2.0, but very little in this chapter is specific to Windows Forms or to the version of Visual Studio or the .NET Framework.
