Localization

Localization is the process of translating a product into a different language. All DevExpress .NET products have localizable resources for UI elements such as dialog boxes, button captions, menu items and error messages.

By localizing the application resources, you can provide an interface that is specific to a particular culture or locale.

For instance, the following image illustrates a WinForms Designer form localized into Spanish.

Depending on the used control, select one of the following approaches to localize the application's UI.
