I have a project where we need 2 languages and we're debating over using local resources files for the localization. These files are created programmatically from the database and not manually edited with the proper languages in them.
Our concerns are:
1. Are local resource files for each page going to cause any performance issues on the site or undue load on the IIS server?
2. When information is changed for the resources we need a way to updating the site with the new resource files - what's a good way to do this? Is it simply copying over a new .resx file? What if someone is reading that file at the time, will that cause any
issues? Will the site need to be recompiled?
3. Would reading from the database be a better solution for speed and updating?
Thanks for any input.

Look at http://www.guysmithferrier.com/ and in particular at Guy Smith's book
ISBN 0321341384. The book is available online at Safari books at
Also his presentation
The database option is certainly more flexible.
