Simply epic. I am using this for removing unused resources (resources with 0 references in source code).

I've just registered to write this review! This is a fantastic tool, and between this and resharper it makes converting a project to multiple languages so much easier!

Buy this man a beer!!

Makes localization such a breeze!

One of the most convenient ways to localize your project.
It also supports search for translations.
But do not rely on maschine generated translations. Your users will see the lack of professionalism.

The solution is there! Export your resources as excel and let native speakers/translators work with them, reimport.

Great extension!

You definitely should read this before even thinking about using machine translations without manual review :-)

Já testei vários componentes de tradução.
Dos gratuitos este é o melhor! Sem comparação!
E o desenvolvedor é bem acessível quanto a sugestões de melhorias.

Invaluable tool! Just great and one of the most useful tools for VS.

Over the past couple of years, many of my projects have required multi-language support, some with over 1,000 resource elements in 12 twelve languages. I can't imagine managing these types of projects without ResX Manager. 5 stars is not enough!

Works good to delete unused resources

Removing 30 rows from 3 resx languages took took 4 full minutes, and I was unable to use my computer for the entire duration due to the resx windows constantly being called into the foreground. I think I could have completed the operation by hand quicker, but then I'd have carpel tunnel syndrome.

It's inexplicably slow, but I don't blame the author. This feature should be included in Microsoft Visual Studio as a first class feature where manual window switching isn't required to update the simple files.

I actually don't see any new projects built on top of .NET any more anyway. Visual Studio is dead. Visual Studio Code and Node.js forever.

I don't know why Visual Studio doesn't have a better linkage between culture-specific resource files but this extension addresses the problem beautifully. Being able to see all of my keys and all of the translations in one window is pure genius. Highly recommend.

Great extension! Should be bought by MS and incorporated into VS by default.

Amazing plugin. Greatly simplifies translation work.

  • Move to Resources and multiple key paste
    2 Posts | Last post May 04, 2016
    • Hi!
      First of all, this is an awesome tool!
      I saw in the configuration part, that there is a "move to resources" table with regexp like strings. I also find that if i select a text then it can be moved to a specific resource. I just wondering if it possible to let's say right click on a file in the solution explorer, and from a context menu start a file-scan to find the resource references, mostly the undefined keys and add them to the resource files (maybe with an confirmation dialog)
      And one thing, it would be nice to be able to add multiple resource keys at once.
      Thank you for yout efforts! Keep up the awesome work!

    • Great plugin!
      I would like to export the References that it has found for each resource entry. I can see them in the mouseover for each entry. 
      Even a copy and paste would be useful. Is this possible?

    • Hi, 
      First off congrats to this great Tool. I was wondering whether it is possible to match resources located in different folders but with the same name e.g. en and de.

    • Hello,
      Great tool it was working great until we switch our computers to windows 10 and visual studio 2015. It now crashes visual studio 2015 each time we open ResxManager therefor making it unusable.

    • Hi, 
      This tool is a great resource for localization. It has been helpful for my team to 
      search for orphaned resource strings.
      At this moment it scans only .cs files for orphaned strings, can it scan .html files as well ? or are you planning to add this feature in an upcoming release.
    • You can configure this on the configuration tab. It uses regular expressions, so it be configured to support nearly everything 
    • Thanks for the reply. It is a great feature with lot of flexibility. As an end-user, I would suggest that configuration tab and other tabs, be placed on top instead of bottom, as it took a while for me to search for the config tab with all other stuff that was open in Visual studio.
      Regarding the html files, there is start comment <!-- and end comment --> .  How can one specify these as Comment Token in configuration ?
    • Sorry, the algorithm is very slim and can handle line comments only, no block comments, so you may get some false positives here...
  • delete button is always disabled

    • I installed this to find and delete unused references.  unfortunately, the delete button is always disabled (greyed out).  what is causing this? can i fix this?  the source files are not set to read-only
    • forgot to mention that i am running vs 2015 update 1 with the latest version of this extension
    • You can't delete individual cells, you need to select full rows.
  • How to paste a big number of rows ?

    • 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.
