I?m hoping it will be third time lucky for me as I return to the Coventry chapter of The Next Generation User Group on Monday 8th December 2008 for another outing of the Internationalizing WPF And Silverlight Applications talk. Here?s the abstract again:-
- The .NET Framework has supported internationalization since 1.0 but with each new UI platform comes a new approach and new challenges. Unlike Windows Forms and ASP.NET, WPF does not offer one standard solution to localization. Instead it offers choices. This session shows how to localize WPF applications using standard .resx files and how to localize ?post-build? using LocBaml with and without Resource Dictionaries. In addition you will see how to localize a Silverlight application using .resx files and we will consider issues that are specific to Silverlight. We will evaluate the pros and cons of each approach and arm you with the information required to form a localization strategy for your applications.
On my previous two attempts despite heavy and heavier hints for my fondness for medically disturbing junk food taste sensations the "Faggot And Pea Batch" (a delicacy of Coventry) was not forthcoming. But this time it?s Christmas. Surely it will be this time. And a Merry "Faggot And Pea Batch" Christmas to everyone!
