C# export object to javascript, translate page controls

Our internal site has about 200 pages on it and each page has anywhere from 20-100 labels(controls) with titles that need translating.

We don’t do any controls in .NET ie. No serve side or runat.

We currently use Resource files with our 5 different languages and pivot off the users language to display the appropriate text/translation.

Looks something like this.


m.LangOutControl = GetLanguage();

    private string GetLanguage()
    {
        return string.Format("{0},{1},{2},{3},{4}",
              InnUtil.GetResourceLabel("plnCopytoNextPeriod", InnEnum.ResourceFile.App2),
              InnUtil.GetResourceLabel("labStrategy", InnEnum.ResourceFile.Common),
              InnUtil.GetResourceLabel("labAction", InnEnum.ResourceFile.Common),
              InnUtil.GetResourceLabel("labMeasure", InnEnum.ResourceFile.Common),
              InnUtil.GetResourceLabel("labIDP", InnEnum.ResourceFile.Common)
             );
    }

Open in new window



}

This returns a string to a JS function on the master page.

    <script type="text/javascript">
        function GetLangControl() { return '<%= LangOutControl %>'; }
    </script>

Open in new window


Then we put it into an object in JS and load populate the TEXT/HTML.

So I want to move this away from resource files and into our DB, create a tool that the owners of the Applications can manage the text/labels etc. by the appropriate language.

First question: Anyone have a different approach that might work for us.

Second question: How do I make my return an object so I don’t have to rely on position. Ie. From C# my return is this:

{
Lbl: “First Label”,
Lbl2: “Second label”
}

I believe this page answer your question : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb412179(v=vs.110).aspx
So mainly the goal to create a DataContract which define your object with DataMember (which can be based on other DataContract) and use DataContractJsonSerializer to create this Javascript object
