#1,123 – Localization IV – Download and Build the LocBaml Tool

After generating UIDs for all user interface elements in your project, the next step is to extract elements that need to be localized (i.e. given values for a specific language) into an external file.  This file can be passed to people doing the localization.

To extract localizable data, you need a tool called LocBaml.  This tool is made available by Microsoft, but not distributed with Visual Studio.

To get a copy of the LocBaml tool:

  • Download LocBaml project (for .NET 4) from here
  • Open LocBaml project and rebuild using Release|x86 configuration, targeting a .NET Framework version that matches your main project
