I love your ResXManager!

Just what I needed! Brilliant tool!

Makes localisation unbelievably easy. Very highly recommended.

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.

More than Greatest !!!!

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 ( - 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.

A lucky one you are, localization not part of ALM, and even end-users do the job of translation ;-)

Simple and easy to use... all I needed

Overall its amazing to see all resources in single window. I am sure its worth to use for localization purposes.

One thing that can be enhaced here is to translate strings with a single click to reduce developer's effort, if possible.

Overall a fantastic tool!
Only thing I find a little unfortunate is that it does not detect "code references" within data attributes.

[Display(Name = "Id", ResourceType = typeof(Localization.Strings))]
public Int32 Id { get; set; }

This doesn't count as a code reference.

It also has trouble detecting code references inside Razor web templates:

<input type="datetime-local" placeholder="@Localization.Strings.CustomDateFormat" name="start">

This also doesn't count as a code reference.

Besides that, the best tool I've found for helping globalize my projects!

Excellent tool, wish it had a search option and an XLIFF IO option

#1)You can search via the filter in each column, or do you need more?
#2) Added new feature request:

Excellent tool. Very fast feedback and fixes when having an issue! Tom keeps this extension updated at all time which is great.

by Ben Gribble | January 14 2015

It just works(tm). What more do you want?

Tom's code is always solid. That is not very common these days.
It's nice to see. Good job Tom!

by sliverbullet | December 22 2014

It's helps a lot!
Very easy to use.
Convinient for localization work!
If you could offer the translate function in it,it would be better!

    • please add the most important feature -- automatic translation. 
      invoke some public free web services for translation.
      I've seen tools already doing it.

    • Will be coming soon:
      It will cost you a nice review ;-)
  • Export only selected languages

    • Could 'export selected' only export the currently selected columns?
    • There is already a feature request for that, should be in one of the next releases:

    • 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?
