public sealed class CodeDomLocalizationProvider : IDisposable, 

The CodeDomLocalizationProvider class is a serialization provider that provides a localization feature. It supports serializing to resources through IResourceService, and it adds two properties to the root component: Language and Localizable. If Localizable is set to true, this provider changes the way that component properties are generated and routes their values to a resource file. Two localization models are supported.

You can control the cultures that are offered and the style of localization with constructor parameters.
