Hi,

AFAIK it is possible to simply get the resource from the file using the resource ID.

The syntax is LoadResString(resID) where resID is the ID of the string you want to load.

I haven't tried with other languages though ;-)

HTH,
Alon

I prefer to use the resource file as a single column flat file.

I use 1 to 9999 for english and 10001 to 19999 for french (having the same strings in 1 and 10001, 2 and 10002, ...). I ask the user which language he/she wants. If the answer is english, then I set an offset variable to 0. If the answer is french, I set the offset to 10000.

When I need a string, I use this syntax:
LoadResString(intOffset + 1)
