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.

Use one of the following methods to localize DevExpress WinForms controls.

  • Via Satellite Resource Assemblies.
    This is the most common localization approach provided by the .NET Framework and is supported by all DevExpress products.

  • Via Localizer Objects.
    This is a simple approach, supported by DevExpress controls, to replace control resources with new text.

Refer to the Localization Service document to learn how to use the DevExpress Localization Web Service to translate an application into other languages.
