Very nice and easy to use tool. I would love it, if i had this tool 4-5 years ago! This grid-layout (for keys and values with column for every language) is very easy to use and intuitive!

solves the problem of missing stringes from resx files. great tool for translating your app.

This works brilliantly. We're using this to support localization of a WPF application.
Tom is also very responsive to bug reports.

Excellent! Great work! Translations look very good!

Maybe a little feature reuqest would be direct export/import with MS SQL as well.

Awesome tool. It's works really well with multiple resx files and the highlighting is really helpful.

by VilhelmE | December 11 2015

It's just great, it fits perfectly into the development process! The export/import feature is very useful to have when other persons, i.e. not IT professionals, are making translations for the system that you are developing. Thank you!

VS really should integrate it.

The extension solves the biggest problems I have with resx files. Namely having to open each file when I want to add a resource. And having exceptions everywhere when I forget an entry somewhere...

4 stars because there are still a few little bugs ... but it's all apologized!

Discovered this recently, and it has quickly become an essential tool. It has all the features I need for managing my resource file-based localization needs, without being too bloated. It feels like a tool that could be part of the base Visual Studio install.

Thanks a bundle for sharing this!

Nice tool, just misses the support of Razor files auto generation

  • How to paste a big number of rows ?
    2 Posts | Last post December 22, 2015
    • Hi there,
      Great extension so far.
      One of my language wasn't fully translated so I gave my translator an excel file with KEY/VALUE/COMMENT so He can translate.
      I want to paste the 3 columns. It's possible using the default rsx manager from VS but it takes ages (a couple hours for 500 rows, and i'm trying to paste 2000rows).
      I've displayed only key/Spanish/Spanish comment, in your RsxManager but when I paste I always have errors (headers not having the good format, then problem to parse the header...)
      Is there a way to paste only the values for a languages ?
      Thank you ! 
    • First do a copy of the existing content and paste it into an empty Excel sheet, then you will see the correct header format.

    • I found your extension very useful, thank you. In my project we have a separate person who manage strings and translations but he doesn't know visual studio. Currently we use export/import excel feature  -> copy/paste google sheet but we faced on with a merging issues. When translation manager update string and developer add new string we should merge it manually. We use comments like "edited" or "new %date%" to help us. I plead you to create next features which will extremely increased popularity of your plugin:
      - update project resources based on google sheet
      - update google sheet based on project resources
      - resolve conflicts window which simply ask you two options use google or use project string 
      If you think this idea useful I can help you with it's implementation

    • This plugin is really, really, really great but I have issues. In my project there are multiple resource files with the same name in different sub directories. Actually named Locale.resx -- it's just the way it is. While ResXManager seems to work anyway, and the excel export in a way works as well, the excel import screws everything up. Is there a way to switch from "FileName" to "Namespace+Class"? While file name may not be unique in a single project, a Namespace+Class must be. Or include the sub directories within the project, not just the file name, that makes it unique as well.
    • I am having this same issue.
  • Handling linebreaks
    2 Posts | Last post September 03, 2015
    • I can't add linebreaks via "shift + enter"
      Are there any plans for supporting this? 
    • you must use "ctrl + enter", not "shift + enter"

    • Hello,
      Do I need to have ms office installed for the export to succeed ? The export do not complain, the file is created and when I open it with open office I can see as many tabs as selected files, but each tab is desperately empty... Could somebody help me ?
      Thank you.
    • [UPDATE]
      I've managed to get a version of Office and everything is ok. Just forget to deal with Open Office it is not compatible.

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

    • 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:
