This article overviews how an Umbraco CMS website uses and manages localization files.
This article is a work in progress.


Localization files are used to translate:
  • The Umbraco backoffice user interface so that end users can use Umbraco in their native language. This is particularly important for content editors who do not speak English.
  • The member identity errors in an Umbraco website enable end users to use Umbraco in the website language.
