Globalization & Localization in .NET 6

Globalization is the method of designing and developing applications functioning for multiple cultures.

Localization is the method of customizing your application for a particular culture and locale.

Cultures and Locales

The language needs to be linked with the particular region where it is spoken, and it is done by using locale (language + location). For example, fr-FR is the code for the French language. So, fr notifies only the language, whereas fr-FR is the locale. Likewise, fr-CA defines another locale implying French language and culture in Canada. If we use only fr, it means a neutral culture (i.e., location-neutral).

  2. .NET 6SDK.

Resource Files

  1. A resource file is an XML file containing the strings you want to translate into different languages or paths to images.
  2. The resource file contains key/value pairs. Also, each pair is a single resource. Key names are not case-sensitive.

e.g., A resource file may ay contain a resource with the key Button1 and the value Submit

Resource files in ASP. NET have an .resx extension. At run time, the .resx file is compiled into an assembly.
