In September I presented Internationalizing Silverlight at the Silverlight UK User Group (#SLUGUK) and Ian Smith (@irascian) has done a fabulous job of recording and editing it.
Before you watch it here are a couple of things to note:-
- I have now automated the process of creating localized XAP files and you do not have to go through the manual steps that I mention in the video. You can read my blog post on this here.
- On one of the slides I have a screen grab of "konnichiwa" in a Japanese font and my brain was clearly in neutral as I called it kanji when it is hiragana.
- I concede Gordon Mackie's point that the correct translation of "Hello World" to French is indeed "Bonjour Tout Le Monde".
You can download the slides here, the source code here and the Silverlight MSBuild tasks here.
A huge thanks to Ian Smith for going to all this trouble to record and edit this. This is no small effort and Ian is doing a major service to our community in consistently recording these events for us. Thanks, Ian.
