Localize Lync 2010 Control Applications

This topic and the accompanying video show how to localize a Microsoft Lync 2010 Control application.

To localize a Lync Control application, create a separate set of resources (such as strings and images) that are appropriate for the users of each targeted culture or locale and that can be retrieved dynamically depending on the culture and locale.

For information about localizing a Microsoft Silverlight application, see Localizing Silverlight-based Applications. To correctly display private use area (PUA) and double-byte characters in a Lync Control Silverlight application, explicitly set the font, as shown in the following example.

  <controls:MyStatusArea Name="mystatusarea1" Height="24" FontFamily="Tahoma, Segoe UI, Lucida Sans Unicode, Lucida Grande, SimSun, SimSun-18030"/>
