Jollans Multi-Language is a tool that provides extended support for localization of Visual Studio projects. It allows you to create and edit resource files for different languages and cultures, and generate localized versions of your application. In this article, we will show you how to use Jollans Multi-Language 6.02.0043 for Visual Studio 2002-2017.
Step 1: Install Jollans Multi-Language
To install Jollans Multi-Language, you need to download the installer from https://www.jollans.com/multi-language/ and run it. You can choose the edition that matches your version of Visual Studio (2002, 2003, 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 or 2017). The installer will add a new menu item called \"Multi-Language\" to your Visual Studio toolbar.
Step 2: Create a new project or open an existing one
You can use Jollans Multi-Language with any project type that supports localization, such as Windows Forms, WPF, Windows Store, ASP.NET 2.0, Compact Framework or MFC (unmanaged C++). You can also use it with any language that supports resource files, such as C#, VB.NET, C++ or unmanaged C++. To create a new project, go to File > New > Project and select the template you want. To open an existing project, go to File > Open > Project/Solution and browse to the location of your project file.
Step 3: Add languages to your project
To add languages to your project, go to Multi-Language > Add Language and select the languages you want to support. You can also remove languages by going to Multi-Language > Remove Language and deselecting the languages you don't want. Jollans Multi-Language will create a subfolder for each language under your project folder, and copy the default resource files (such as Form1.resx) to each subfolder. You can then edit the resource files for each language using the built-in editor or an external tool.
Step 4: Edit resource files for each language
To edit resource files for each language, go to Multi-Language > Edit Resources and select the language you want to edit. You will see a window that shows the default resource file on the left and the localized resource file on the right. You can change the values of the properties (such as Text, Image or Location) for each control on your form or window. You can also add new resources (such as strings or images) by clicking on the Add button at the bottom of the window. You can save your changes by clicking on the Save button at the top of the window.
Step 5: Build and run your application
To build and run your application, go to Build > Build Solution and wait for the compilation to finish. Then go to Debug > Start Debugging or press F5 to run your application. You will see your application in the default language (usually English). To switch to another language, go to Multi-Language > Change Language and select the language you want. You will see your application in the selected language with all the resources translated.
Jollans Multi-Language is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that helps you localize your Visual Studio projects. It supports various project types, languages and cultures, and allows you to create and edit resource files for different languages. You can also switch between languages at runtime and see how your application looks in different languages.
