Localization is one of the most important condition for creating a truly high-quality software. Symbian C++ supports a flexible feature for creating localized applications. The main idea of Symbian C++ approach is to separate messages from source code. Messages are located in special files (one file for each language). Further work with these messages is based on the use of special identifiers.

This article includes step by step guide that demonstrates how to create a message in different languages, how to use this message in source code, which files how to include in the final sis-file. The article contains simple and clear example of code that allows you better to understand the mechanism of localization. It is a good idea to use this example as a template for creating own application.
