This question really belongs in the Technical section.

Can you be more specific about what you are trying to do?

Globalization and localization.

Postby watashi » Mon Jun 30, 2008 5:37 pm

Hello,
According to the computer`s operating system , my application should change its language. For example in label , Default is NAME. If OS is japanese then it should be 名前: . If OS is english it should be NAME: .
If OS is other than these two , it should be default value.
In c#, there is option for this , called localization.
If you just change the resource file, it will automatically update in the application. I was searching for that feature. Does BCB have any that kind feature?

With regards,
watashi

So, you want your application to discover which language is being used by the OS, and then load the resource DLL that will change the user interface to the same language.

This is possible in BCB, and is part of 'localization'.

I have no experience of using languages other than the default English, so cannot help directly. Maybe someone with some foreign language experience can point you in the right direction.

Which version of BCB are you using?

Have a look at this page in the Google archives www.deja.com

It is a search results page from the newsgroup 'borland.public.cppbuilder.internationalization'. Your question has been asked many times.

You may find some useful hints and pointers there.

Globalization is the process of designing and developing applications that function for multiple cultures, and localization is the process of customizing your application for a given culture and locale. The topics in this section describe how to create ASP.NET Web applications that can be adapted to different languages and cultures."
I believe internationalization is the same thing as globalization, the 2 terms are synonyms at least in terms of ASP.NET development
At least that is my understanding of it.
