I am writing APIs in Engish and French using VS 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0. I understand how Localization and Resources (explicit and implicit) are created and their specific case implimentations.
My question is : Are there downloadable modules available from Microsoft to help save time in literally typing out the translations myself ?
Hypothetical Example in VS 2005 : Drop and Drag a login CreateUserWizard tool. My default local resource is default.aspx.resx and the french version default.aspx.fr.resx.
I have to translate/type all the french command values which is rather long and tedious. I am hoping this can be avoided in ASP.NET by locating a download module for the login CreateUserWizard tool in this case. Obviously Microsoft has a french version
of VS 2005 and thus has already accomplished this, However is the resource for this and all other tools downloadable to save me and the rest of the world time?
Thank You in Advance,
Richard J. Rothery Jr.

I haven't heard of anything like this either but I am hoping someone has to save a bit of time translating. No big deal really but prefabricated multilanguage tools would really be nice for uniformity as well.
Hopefully someone or someday we will have all of this. I may just install a french version of VS 2005 and strip off the resources this way yet I find this an unorthodox workaround which probably will not save all that much time.

There's an APRESS Internationalization book that has a few examples on how to do this by calling a Web Service to auto-translate for a first cut.
Check the APRESS site - they may have a direct link to the book's downloads ( I don't want to post it here )...

Sounds like an interesting approach, Apress is usually a very good source for information.
