According to your post, I am wordering the meaning of "new langauge support" means "multi-language".

Using .Net framework can handle the multi-language problem by compile the XML as an embedded resource, and all the constants defined in such XML file can be retrieved during run-time.  When you need to add a new language, you just need to create a new XML file with the definition of the new langauge, compile the XML file and put it under appropiate folder and magically it will work.
