I need to localize a custom application. How is localization done in Sitecore? Where is the Localization folder located?
Use the Sitecore.Globalization.Translate.Text("_key_text_") method for the purpose.
This method searches for a given key-text in the System/Dictionary/* folder of the core database. If the key is found, the text in the appropriate language is returned.
The key field is the same for all languages.
Use the Phrase field to specify the translated text.
