Internationalization and Localization Using Microsoft .NET Reviews
I'm currently reading the book "Internationalization and Localization Using Microsoft .NET". The topic of this book is one which I'm very interested in. Unfortunately, this book has been very disappointing to me.
Our company purchased this book so that we could localize a C# .net project. This book offered very few technical details about important parts of the process.
DISCLAIMER: I was asked to review this book by a few people who were disappointed that I did not have plans to revise my efforts for .Net in the immediate future. So keep in mind that I am an expert with high expectations, rather than someone who bought the book to learn about the topic.
With a title like "Internationalization and Localization Using Microsoft .Net" I expected a lot more than this really thin book with no CD. One of the big things I was hoping for was information about the new Chinese encoding standard and whether .Net supports it. The government of China requires support and so we needed to know what .Net provides for it. But there was not even a word on how our international application could support it. In the end, I really got more help from the various topics in the MSDN that came with Visual Studio .Net than I did from this book.
I was given this book by my boss because we were about to work on an internationalized application. She wanted us to consider doing it with Visual Studio .Net.
