#1: How to make asp.net website multi-lingual from the outset

Posted on 2008-04-10 23:56:33 by MD Websunlimited

Before I start creating a new asp.net website, is there a standard way of
making it multi-lingual?

For example, rather than type in body text to a page, should I rather refer
by number code to a row in a language table from which to pull the
appropriate text? Same with menu elements etc? I am thinking of having a
drop-down on the top-right like MS does with Language and country flag too.

Start by placing controls on the page that hold anything that has to be in a
specific language. You then create a resource file for your default
language.

For any bits that change regularly, you are better to store in a persistant
store, like a database, than resource files, so it is sometimes useful to
put all text in the database and use a custom resource provider.

For menus, you can set the text with resource pointers and use resource
files.

As far as language shown to user, I would start with their default language
(selected in their browser) and then allow the drop down to set a cookie
that overrides that decision.

Regardless of whether you store in a database, you can use a resource
provider. Michele Leroux Bustamante has an article on MSDN on custom
providers that is a good start.

Hi Jonathan,

Sure, globlization/mutli-lingual application development is supported from
the begining of .net framework. Ever since 2.0, ASP.NET web application
has much improved multi-lingual web application development (especially
when you design page in Visual Studio 2005 or new VS 2008). For example,
when you create the page in designer, you can specify the page to load
property values from resource items rather than static values. And then,
you can author the resource files for different languages. Here are some
web article that can give you some quick view and ideas:

#Localization Made Easy with ASP.NET 2.0

2e1

You can also get more ideas from MSDN reference or the ASP.NET quickstart:

#Internationalizing Your Application
