The most popular tool to localize and manage all kind of applications with resx-based resources, with more than 800K downloads from the Visual Studio Marketplace and hundreds of 5 star reviews

This is a community driven Open Source project. As such it needs your support to keep it alive and evolving. The best way to contribute is to help fixing bugs, or adding new features. However, if you cannot help with coding, consider to [donate a small amount](../../wiki/Donate) to ensure ResX Resource Manager will continue to be a great project that can help you in your daily work.

This tool provides central access to all ResX-based string resources in your solution. You can quickly navigate through all resource files and view the content in a well-arranged data grid. All available languages are displayed side by side in columns, to make it easy to find untranslated strings or clean up orphaned entries. All strings can be quickly edited in place, untranslated entries will be created on the fly while typing.

Suitable for any .Net application; WPF is supported if you use the x:Static markup extension to access the ResX - resources.

Available as VS2015-2019 extension and as standalone executable to support VS2013 and older or users without Visual Studio at all. A scipting module is available as well, so you can easily automate resource tasks, e.g. export untranslated string during build.

All versions can be downladed from the [releases](../../releases) page.

The Visual Studio Extension is also available at the Visual Studio Marketplace, or by searching for RESX in the Visual Studio extension manager. The latest build of the Visual Studio Extension is available at the Open VsixGallery

The standalone version can be installed as click-once application here. Check the Microsoft Docs to temporarily enable the ClickOnce Trust Prompt if Windows won't let you run the application because of an "Untrusted Publisher" warning.
