"Internationalization and Localization Using Microsoft .NET" shows how to localize code using Visual Studio .NET. Author Nick Symonds is an experienced developer and project manager of Windows applications intended for use worldwide. Symmonds knows the advantages of localization in the design stage and the disadvantages of localizing a project after the fact. Both methods of localizing code are discussed in this book. VS .NET has quite a few tools available for the developer to aid in the localization process. These tools are discussed in depth, and the pros and cons of each are presented to the reader. Symmonds includes a comprehensive example of a resource editor that takes readers through writing this editor in both C# and VB .NET. This project is not only useful as a product in itself, but is also instructive in how to write fairly complicated code in both .NET languages.
