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.
