Creating Global Resources : Global Resources « I18N « ASP.NET Tutorial





You create global resource files by adding the files to a special folder named App_GlobalResources. 
This folder must be located in the root of your application.

File: App_GlobalResources\Site.resx
Name        Value
Title        My website
Copyright    Copyright 2006 by the Company

The following page uses the entries from the global resource file.

<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
