In a long overdue first return to the Southampton chapter of The Next Generation User Group I will be giving the following presentation on internationalizing Silverlight on Thursday 18th June 2009:-
- How To Achieve World(-Ready) Domination In Silverlight
So you've written your Silverlight application and you want it to work in another language ? Then this session is for you. World-Readiness is all of the work that a developer needs to do to globalize an application and make it localizable (i.e. capable of being localized). Whereas these concepts are well established in Windows Forms and ASP.NET, Silverlight is not only a cut-down version of the .NET Framework but also cross platform and client-side. In this session you will learn how to localize Silverlight applications using .resx files, download culture-specific resources on demand so that users only download resources for the culture they need, understand what System.Globalization types and properties Silverlight does not support and why, what CultureInfo and RegionInfo support you can expect on different operating systems, what the Silverlight installation user experience is for non-English users and what language support you can expect from the Silverlight framework.
