    I have created a winforms with components and I want to localize it (using the .resx files
    I set the forms property localizable to true and the default language to "french"
    When I want to add a componenet (a radbutton for exemple) I have an error message that tells me "Impossible to add a componenet in localizable mode - set the language to default"
    How can I convert my form to be localizable (I need the application to support English and french)
    Thanks

    Hello Pierre-Jean,

    Thank you for writing.  

    This is normal behavior and it can be obtained with the standard MS WinForms controls as well.
    In order to localize the controls on the form, I would recommend you to follow the steps demonstrated in this help article: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/y99d1cd3(v=vs.71).aspx

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions I would be glad to help.

    Regards,
    Dess
