There's a couple of basic things to understand though, before you create a multilingual ASP.NET application. Let's agree on some basic definitions as these terms are often used interchangeably.
- Internationalization (i18n) - Making your application able to support a range of languages and locales
- Localization (L10n) - Making your application support a specific language/locale.
- Globalization - The combination of Internationalization and Localization
- Language - For example, Spanish generally. ISO code "es"
- Locale - Mexico. Note that Spanish in Spain is not the same as Spanish in Mexico, e.g. "es-ES" vs. "es-MX"
