The use case:

  • You have hardcoded text strings in your C# code which has to be translated
  • You right click on the text and select the word or whole sentence
  • You click on the magic option - Move to resx
  • This will automatically move the selected sentence in corresponding resx file and replace the selected text with reference to it.

    • The name of the resx file and its namespace is ideally by convention something like "{OriginalFileName}_Resources.resx". Also the file gets generated if it does not exist.
    • The key of the resource is generated automatically PascalCasing the original word/sentence (e.g. "Please choose your options" converts to "PleaseChooseYourOptions").
    • The default resource language can be configured.
