TranSolution (Localization Add-In)

238
Last Updated: 1/26/2012

Professional localization add-in for Microsoft Visual Studio. Integrates into Visual Studio itself, allowing a programmer to easily extract all ".resx" strings from any .NET solution and store them in a single file that translators can localize using a free standalone application (Visual Studio not required). The same add-in is then used to import the translated strings back into the programmer's solution. Extremely easy to use with almost no learning curve, and priced far lower than all competitive products, TranSolution includes extensive functionality such as the detection of changed strings in your solution (those requiring retranslation), the ability for translators to view your Windows forms and user controls during the translation process (and even make size and location adjustments if you grant permission), an automatic translation feature if you grant permission, the ability for translators to automatically propagate translations for duplicate strings (reducing the overall cost), a cost calculator to determine the cost, and much more. Many safeguards are also included such as the enforcement of composite formatting items in all translated strings (e.g., ensuring your translator includes "{0}" when translating a string like "File {0} not found"). Conducts extensive checking during incoming translation as well, logging all translation changes to the Visual Studio output Window and even warning the programmer about any conflicts (for instance, whether a string was changed in your solution while it was out for translation - the incoming translations can then be ignored or accepted on request). This program genuinely makes translation about as easy as it can be for both programmers and translators. Not just marketing hype, try it yourself and see. A sample solution is included but try our evaluation version on your own solution. We believe you'll find TranSolution the easiest and most cost-effective localization tool on the market.
