Localized Form Sample Code

The following is the resulting form once I went through the sample code from the Localization by Resource File section and made all of my localized configurations:

     /// <summary>      /// Required designer variable.      /// </summary>      private System.ComponentModel.Container components = null;      public Form1()      {         //         // Required for Windows Form Designer support         //         InitializeComponent();
