  1. A tutorial on what the compiler warning mean and how the can be solved

    "No native resource files were found during the build" or
    "Project ‘xxx' is configured to use 'en-GB' [English (United Kingdom)] as the source language." or
    "If the project has a 'en-GB\<filename>.resw file (or similar), double check to ensure the build action is set to 'PRIResource' "
    are reported as warnings in our case.

    Is something missing in our project?
    Please add a tutorial on what all the warnings that could be reported means and how they can be solved.

      • Try entering a literal string with, say, <strong> around a word

        Try entering a literal string with, say, <strong> around a word, or maybe a <a href tag. The MAT creates a xlf file the MAT editor cant load, and I have to open in notepad, delete the offending tags. Then it works (ish) I still have a support call open about getting the app to translate when published to another server.

                • Usability!

                  Perhaps I misunderstand the usage of this, but my experience is one of frustration. Installed it (msi rather than vsix, sigh). VS2015/Win10. Tried to enable, got a dialog that told me to look at the MAT output window, can't find that, finally realize that it just means the output window (do you have any idea how many different "windows" VS provides?). Vague error, google search, added NeutralResourcesLanguage setting to AssemblyInfo.cs ... really!? you couldn't have just told me that? Now it's "enabled" whatever that means, because the context menu for the project exists but all the options are disabled ("greyed…

                    • The toolkit should not override Resw files that exist for other languages

                      Without File History switched on, I would have lost my already existing resource file with human translations while trying out the Multilingual App Toolkit. It is bad enough that the toolkit does not consider such existing translations, but overriding such files without confirmation seems unacceptable to me.

                      On a general note: For translating a Resw file into another language I would personally not even consider using a special tool. I was actually rather expecting the toolkit would pick up hard-coded strings in code to help with localisation of existing projects. Such functionality does not seem to be implemented.

                        • A tutorial on how to add/update/remove the strings in the .resw files

                          I just started using Multilingual App Toolkit. Its great and not very difficult to understand and use.
                          The introduction video on Channel9 is a great place to start using this. But, I did not find any resources on how to update other resw files when source resw file is udpated.
                          I was able to get the updated strings to work on the other resw files using MAT, but I don't know if I am doing it right.
                          If there is such a help resource, please share. Else, a tutorial video or image-supported text tutorial would be really helpful.

                            • fix convert problem '?xml' with embedded xml structure in resx file

                              When working with the editor, any used tablelayoutpanel in my winform has its own "LayoutSettings" data section in the ressource file.
                              This section consists of a XML structure itself starting with a '?xml' statement. The editor can not process this!
                              errormessage: "Convert file aWindow.resx to XLIFF format failed. Message:Unsupported processing instruction '?xml' found during encoding. Please remove unsupported processing instructions from the xml."

                              Is there a workaround.

                                    • how to remove pseudo localized testing

                                      I have followed the instructions at the following URL to enable the pseudo localized testing.

                                      https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd374118%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

                                      I started getting warnings about including the pseudo resources in production builds, so I removed the 3 registry settings and rebooted. I searched the registry, and there is no reference to those values any more.

                                      I am still getting the warning about pseudo localization testing being enabled. How does one turn this off once 'enabled' on a project?

                                      I am in VS 2015 working in a Prism WPF application.

                                      thanks in advance for your time.
