Happy new year guys, can anyone give me an introduction into how localisation can be achieved within Visual C++, without the use of external tools? Do most developer use a string table in the resources and reference the text using IDs? Also I have tried searching the net for any information, but keep on getting websites which show localisation being done with 3rd party tools Thanks Dark Star UK

Have a look at LoadString and FormatMessage. FormatMessage() lets you specify the language ID to load, which corresponds to the language of the string table you create. You can also pass 0 as the language ID to have the OS try and choose the best available language based on the languages available in your string table and the current user's language settings.
