Hello everybody,

I am currently developing a Vb.net application for my automation controls such as HMI. Before i get deep into my project, i would like to hear out some opinions out there.

My project will contain multiple languages(english, spanish, chinese, japanese, korean, etc) with a click of buttons/radio buttons to switch languages.
The application will contain a main screen with buttons, that lead to multiple screens. Once the language is selected, buttons, lots of text, images, will change according to whichever language that I have selected.

What is the best way of doing this ?

1) SQL database that stores all the languages, and once the language is selected, the screen will pull out all data from sql database instead ? The rate of it changing will be slow?

2) Localization. Been reading it but have not gotten a grasp of it yet.

3) anymore ideas?

Hope to hear from someone out there!

Hi,


Use Resource files.
language.resx
language.en-US.resx(US english)
language.de-DE.resx(GERMAN)
language.fr-FR.resx(FRENCH) etc..,
in your application to do localization.
On the button click , change the cultureInfo to related language. it will update your language

Regards,
