Widget Template Localization

  • If I want to include a text in a widget template what would be the correct way to localize it?
  • Hello Nelson,

    Please take a look at the this topic from our documentation: Providing Localizable Resources. This provides information on the approach we use for localization resources, which will also allow to translate those resources from the Sitefinity UI.

  • Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    The link to the documentation was not really useful... I already knew how Sitefinity resources work. My initial inquiry was about the recommended approach to creating Widget Templates with multi-language support? E.g: if I'm creating a template for the News widget (in list mode) and I want to include some text (like: "read more") below every headline, how should I do it in order to maintain the ability of the website to be translated from the Sitefinity backend?

    Thanks again.
  • Hi Nelson,

    This article explains exactly that how you can create resource classes which can be used in widget templates (section using resources in code).

    All the best,
