Essential Tool if you have a multi-locale project. Tom is also very responsive when it comes to issues and feature requests. ResXManager is one of only two essential extensions I require all my devs to have installed.
Great tool, but it would be better not to create localizations in Visual Studio. Using satellite assemblies localization can be created using only .dll/.exe (compiled project).
This way adding a new language does not require recompiling the project. What is more translation could be made even by the end-user.
I found localization tool called LSACreator (http://www.tbs-apps.com/lsacreator - free for non-commercial use or buy option) which does exactly that. It is simple and has same useful features. I am not sure are there any other tools which use only .dll/.exe.
I've started evaluating this tool for my colleagues and I to use. However, I encountered something a little funny with it - or perhaps related to it.
At least one of our solutions doesn't seem to work with the tool - the resource files are not found. The only thing different between this solution and the ones I've tried where it works (wonderfully!) is that this solution was created in Visual Studio 2010 *SP1* and the others with the RTM version. I also note (since it seems important) that the display of properties on the .resx file mentions that a custom tool was used - which I thought was the default one: ResXFileCodeGenerator
Is there any thing to these observations? Otherwise, what would prevent ResXManager from working on these files?
