How do I manage a lot of resx files


Kenneth Jonsson

We have a product with several projects with a total of 130+ forms (and
resx-files). We are now about to look inte localization of the application,
it is probably only a question of translation of labels and meny items. We
can manage string resources separately in a single project with only the
string resources.
Do we have to end up with 130+ sattelite assemblies for each language?
Translators will have to manage meny single resx-files, but that is perhaps
not an issue.
I had hoped for that resx-files could be combined into one project creating
one satellite assembly for each language, but the connection from a dialog
class to its resource file is not obvious to me.
Please advice me how to manage the large number of resx-files to make the
business of localization and translation as simple as possible.

For the benefit of others who may come across this (2.5 years after the original post), I offer a professional localization product that makes translating ".resx" files extremely easy. See
