Using Lingobit Localizer to create resource-only DLLs


Lingobit Localizer significantly simplifies and speed up creation of resource-only DLLs. With Lingobit Localizer you do not need to make any changes to your source code because all Lingobit Localizer needs to create resource-only DLLs is executable files.

Using language libraries

Using resource only dll for localizationWhen resource-only DLLs are ready you should integrate them into your software. If you use Delphi or C++Builder, your application will automatically load language libraries. If you application is MFC-based, you can easily integrate resource-only DLLs using Lingobit Multilingual Library. It is open-source and you can quickly modify it for your needs.

How it works

Lingobit Localizer works by extracting resources from your application's executable files (*.exe, *.dll), after that letting you translate strings, dialogs and other resources using intuitive and productive user interface and then placeing localized resources into resource-only DLLs. Lingobit Localizer helps you release multilingual application quickly and efficiently.

Manual creation

On the other hand, if you use traditional way to get resource-only DLLs you need to create separate project for resource-only DLL in every language, move resources from one project to another, handle errors made by translator in RC files and almost retranslate whole application when you release next version of your application. It takes time, money and efforts to get past all those problems that you can avoid if you use Lingobit Localizer.
