Planning for Localization and Globalization

Planning for Localization and Globalization

When developing an application that you intend to localize for an international audience, we strongly recommend that you do not hard-code strings, images, sounds, videos, or other resources. Instead, load resources from a resource-only DLL. When you need to modify a resource, you modify it once in the resource DLL rather than needing to update your source code. In addition, the process of localization is much easier and more efficient.
