(2) Thanks to get 1st answer of the following (1) section. and now can any one help to provide sample source code to write a tool to edit the resource file of multi-language with own XML format ? Or, any guid line of it ? Thanks.

(1) Hi, I am writing a Windows Forms application, it will be for multi-language, I now can implement it to have resx file for different language in this application, however, I also have to provide easy way for our customer to edit resx file for his language string outside the VS, are there free tools for this purpose ? If I have to write tool by myself, what's the guide line to follow up (detailed source code will be appreciated) ? Thanks.

We had the same problem a while back, omitted the resx stuff and put everything in our own XML format for various reasons.

The drawback of using resx is you need to compile it into an assembly.

If you use resx files for translations, I would not recommend having the user modify it. If it is a mandatory request, use a flat file xml instead and write an application for that. You'll need to modify your app to read in the XML instead, but it is pretty straightforward.

Hope this helps.
