The Multi-Language Add-In provides an easy way to add localization to Windows Forms, ASP.NET, WPF and C++/MFC projects. It is fully integrated into Visual Studio and runs in dockable tool window. These are some of the major features: - automatic detection of text strings in your project, including texts in the user interface (for example in the form designer or an ASP page) and texts in the source code - stores translations in a project database in XML format - selection of individual texts for translation - hiding texts which do not require translation - add comments to texts as an aid to translation - simple grid editor with one column per language - export to Excel or OpenOffice spreadsheet for professional translation - import completed translations back from the spreadsheet - automatic online translation with Microsoft or Google translators (subject to support for specific combination of languages). This is a great way to make a quick demonstration version in another language, but not suitable for a released product. - global database of reusable translations (translation memory) - support for different project types (Windows Forms, ASP.NET, WPF, MFC) - support for different programming languages (C#, VB.NET, C++, unmanaged C++) - generates supporting code automatically - can add support for switching between language at runtime - can add a language selection dialog to the project - support for far eastern languages - select or hide texts in the source code with regular expressions, matching either the contents of the text string, or the surrounding code on the same line
