Localized Releases of ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools Update

asp.net mvc, asp.net 0 comments suggest edit

In April we announced the release of ASP.NET MVC 3 Tools Update which added Scaffolding, HTML 5 project templates, Modernizr, and EF Code First Magic Unicorn Edition.

Today, just shy of one month later I’m happy to announce that this release is now available in nine other languages via the Web Platform Installer (Web PI).

We’ve also included release notes translated into the nine languages as well.

The best way to install the language specific version of ASP.NET MVC 3 is via the Web Platform installer because it will chain in the full installer. If you install the language specific version directly from the Download Details page, you’ll need to run two installers, the full installer and then the language pack installer.

    How do you guys, from Microsoft, choose the languages that are going to be localized?

    @Vinicius well we chose the same 9 languages that Visual Studio chose to localize. How did they choose? I don't know, but I imagine it has to do with the amount of demand for the various languages.

    Do you guys need a software developer at Redmond? Maybe I can help with the translation to portuguese. We have more than 250 million portuguese speakers around the world! =D
    By the way, thanks for the answer. =)

    What is the process for installing multiple language resources so the default validators can switch error message language based on current ui culture? I tried without success, I started a topic but no good insights yet.
