File

Use this sheet to specify the file or files you want to localize.

File name

Specifies the file or files that you want to localize. These files are called the original files. The file name can be either a single specific file name or it can contain wildcard characters to specify multiple files (e.g. *.resx). If the file name contains wildcard characters the Localize similar files in the sub directories as well check box will be enabled. If you check it application will look similar files from the sub directories as well.

Original language

Specifies the language of the original file.

Click the scissors icon to change the current country-specific original language id into a country neutral id. For example, if the original language is English (United States), clicking the button makes it English. The button is visible only if the current language id is a country-specific id.

Original encoding

Specifies the character encoding used in the original file. Some files or databases can use several encodings. If this is the case, you can use this combo to select the right encoding. If the file format does not let you choose the encoding, then this combo is either disabled or hidden.

Below the combo box, there is an information line that shows other properties of the original file, such as if the byte order mark is used and what is the new line character(s) used in the file.
