When should we implement localization, can the localization be done at a later stage of development or should it be done at the beginning of the development phase. Please advice.

You have to know HOW to implement during the beginning of the development.
Then you can implement it at end the of development.

We have developed in-production ASP.Net 4.0 website. Client now wants us to implement user language localizations in the website to support a minimum five foreign languages. Can we know if it is feasible to implement loclazation funcationality in fully
developed ASP.Net web site?
Please provide some pointers from which I can start working on the task.
Thanks in advance !

There is no reason you could not implement localization in an application you already have developed. It would simply be a matter of going through the existing code and switching it to work with localization. The best pointer is to learn how globalization/localization
works and then modify your code accordingly. You can take a look at the following resources to learn how localization works and how to implement it within your application.
ASP.NET Globalization and Localization
Localizing ASP.NET Web Pages By Using Resources
Of course it may be easier to implement at the begining of a project if you know the application at some point in time will need localization implemented being you would not need to go back and change things around later but you can always go back through
and modify your code at a later time to take advantage of localization.

Shouldn't be any issue if you want to implement those 5 languagues. If all of them are left to right text direction, then it should be pretty straight forward. Otherwise, you have to create separate skin/css for it.
