Here is a small sample on how to support globalization and localization on

create a text with some strings with key and value pair.

greeting_lblMessage = Hi, Welcome back to my application.

save this as anything with culture code appended to it separate with comma, such as strings.en-US.txt
to the application's root directory.

open a visual studio 2005 command prompt and type in
resgen strings.en-US.txt strings.en-US.resources

Add this code to Page_Load event handler of a page to use the resource created above.

ResourceManager resmgr = ResourceManger.CreateFileBaseResourceManager("strings", Server.MapPath("."), null);
lblMessage.Text = resmgr.GetString("greeting_lblMessage");

Finally, do not forget to import the namespace required for code to work.
