Language packs for an MVC3 website

Go To


I am creating a website structure which will allow for multiple "language packs" for verbiage across the site.

I have look into internationalization, but I'm not sure it's the route will work because all the different language packs will be in English. It would just be re-wordings, essentially.

Can internationalization (with resource files) work for this, or is there a better option out there?

Internationalization should work because it does factor in locale. Even if the language is the same, the locale is different. Eg en-gb

Take a look at this post. Note the section where the post talks about the differences between spanish in mexico and spanish in spain.

It would not be for different locales, however. It would be used for different websites/themes using the same package. There could be 10 different language files, each using "en-us". And to further complicate it, in theory each one of those sites could allow spanish as well, resulting in 10 en-us and 10 sp files - smdrager 2012-04-04 16:46
