The tool is used to replace resource (*.rc) with data from an Excel file.

If you want to develop an application that uses many languages (English US, Kanji, French, Japanese... ), you will prepare many resource files, right? Maybe you can put them into DLL files or anything you like. And here is my solution. I put all STRINGs in a Microsoft Excel file, and I make this tool read STRING from Excel file and build into many resources or executable files. This tool supports Unicode, so you can use it to build applications for Kanji, Korea or Vietnamese languages.

Your task is just to prepare an Excel file.


  1. Run BuilderConfig to create initial Excel file.
  2. Open Excel file and enter strings for another language.
  3. Run LanguagesBuilder to generate multiple resources files or executable files.

Thanks all.
