Translate Visual Studio RC resources files, localize your application easily
RC Localize is a tool, which will help you to localize your Windows resource files (which might come from Visual Studio 6.0 or Visual Studio.Net for example). RC Localize will save your time and make your application more secure:It is no more necessary to use the fastidious Visual Studio editor for localizing your resources files. RC Localize makes the navigation through the resources items easy and displays them in Unicode. When you update a project, RC Localize finds items, which have not already been translated or which need to be checked.Leave the translation to a translator: give him the RC Localize projectThis will allows him to focus only on the translation. Translator does not need to have your resources files and to edit them with the Visual Studio resources editor. Moreover, verification flags will help him to find the items, which have been modified and which need to be checked again.It is not safe to use the Visual Studio resource editor for localizing your resources files. Your application might crash if you add an item to a dialog in a given language and omit to add it in the others languages of your resource. You can also forget to translate an item or forget to report changes among the different languages of your resourceRC Localize is a software that localizes your application.You will not be trapped anymore using RC Localize, because localized resources are copied from the one that is used to finalize you application. Moreover, resources checking feature makes your localized application more secured.Using RC Localize, you choose the language you want to include in your localized resources, when you export them. Nothing is easier to generate a multilingual release for your application or a dedicated release, which contains only a given language. Here are some key features of "RC Localize":
