How to use the Language culture

Aug 31, 2016 at 5:37 PM
Hi,

I try to use the localize with project.Language = "fr-FR";
but it's stay in en-us. It's seems to only have the WixUI_en-us.wxl embedded in the resource

How can I get the french translate to work?

Hi Martin,

The localisation resources are not part of Wix# but WiX.

Thus some specific languages may (or may not) be included into WiX distributed with Wix#. I am guessing that WiX website may have individual resource packages available for downloading.

Of course you can do the translation by yourself (e.g. CustomUIDialog sample). But considering the wide usage of French someone probably already did the translation and you just need to find it.

This is the one that I found immediately: https://github.com/AnalogJ/Wix3.6Toolset/blob/master/RC0-source/wix36-sources/src/ext/UIExtension/wixlib/WixUI_fr-fr.wxl. Though not sure how good/complete it is.

Cheers,
Oleg
