The data block contains all user interface items and no programming code, which means it is the only element that requires localization. dll. g. dll for the French version. Externalizing all translatables to one resource file has the following advantages: • Efficiency – for each new language version of the application, only the resource file needs to be adapted. • Security – localizers or vendors do not need to access the source code. • Quality – reduces the chance of missing translatable strings, and limits the level of functional testing required.

Specific language. Many internationalization problems have been found in sample files, such as document templates, which were not designed with international users in mind. • Manually generated table of contents or index. If the source material does not contain an automatically generated table of contents or index, these elements need to be recreated manually for each target language. Getting the index page numbers right is a very time-consuming process, and leaves a considerable margin for errors.
