    I have multiple reports requiring the same translations in resx files.  Is there a way of referencing a shared resx file in the designer in multiple reports?  The only way I can get the translations to work in the designer is to let it generate the resx's for me on a per report basis.

    Has this been considered?
    If it has, how best to go about implementing this?

    Hi Alanm,

    Telerik Reporting uses a similar methodology for localization as Visual Studio uses for Windows Forms. The designer lets you define static text for the report in each language that you specify and a resource file is automatically created for each language to store translated text. For more info refer to:

    I am currently using the translations exactly as described in the links you provided, that wasn't what I was asking. What I want to know is can I *share* a resx file between *multiple* reports because the way you have provided causes lots of duplication.

    Hello Alanm,

    We stick to the VS localization approach for Win Forms, and in order to have localization at design-time each report should have its own resx file, not shared one.
