I am using Xamarin Forms 5 with Visual Studio 2019 to create an App. The app needs to support multiple languages, so I have been looking at the use of Resource files. The concept looks fine, in terms of the programming side of things, but what about the task of creating the translations into other languages?
For our website, we are able to export the dictionary of content to an XML file, which a translation company can work with and return. We can then import that back into the website.
The app won't have the same amount of textual content, but I don't see how I can use resx files in a similar way. So, how do others manage the task of creating the content in "other" language files?
Some examples I have seen, such as this one - https://xamgirl.com/handle-multilingual-in-xamarin-forms-without-any-plugin/ - show the resources file to be plain XML, but my AppResources file produces a .resx and a .Designer.cs file, neither of which I could confidently send to a translation service company (I don't think?!)
At this point in time, I don't expect to need localised images, etc - but I appreciate that would change my requirements significantly!
