Terms you'll need to understand:

  • Culture

  • Culture code

  • Encoding

  • Globalization

  • Localizability

  • Localization

  • Resource file

  • Unicode

Techniques you'll need to master:

  • Knowing how to implement localizability for the user interface and understanding how to handle culture-specific issues such as different date/time formats, currency formats, and left-to-right text mirroring

  • Experimenting with code that uses the CurrentCulture and CurrentUICulture properties, setting these properties to several different values, and inspecting the differences in your code's output

  • Changing the mirroring of a complex form from one of your own applications and watching how its properties change at runtime

In this chapter, you learn about the concepts and techniques the .NET Framework makes available for developing world-ready applications. You'll need a basic understanding of these concepts and techniques to pass the "Implement Globalization" section of the certification exam.
