public SPUserResourceCollection UserResources { get; }

Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SharePoint.SPUserResourceCollection
A collection of SPUserResource objects that contain user-defined localizable resources.

The collection returned by this property is empty (Count equals 0) if none of the display text associated with the list has been customized. Typically, display text for standard lists such as Announcements and Shared Documents is not customized, and so the UserResources properties for those lists often return empty collections.

If the collection is not empty, then it contains SPUserResource objects that have localizable resources used by the list as well as by fields, content types, and user custom actions associated with the list.

You can call the ExportUserResources method of the SPWeb class to export all user resources for a Web site, including user resources for lists in the site, to a resource file for each of the languages supported by the site. You can then give these files to someone who can translate the strings that they contain. When this work is complete, you can call ImportUserResources to import the translations, making them available to the multilingual user interface.
