Leveraging Globalization and Localization
When developing an application, it is important to think about multi-language support; a multilingual application allows for a wider audience reach. This is also true for web APIs: messages returned by endpoints (for example, validation errors) should be localized, and the service should be able to handle different cultures and deal with time zones. In this chapter of the book, we will talk about globalization and localization, and we will explain what features are available in minimal APIs to work with these concepts. The information and samples that will be provided will guide us when adding multi-language support to our services and correctly handling all the related behaviors so that we will be able to develop global applications.
In this chapter, we will be covering the following topics:
- Introducing globalization and localization
- Localizing a minimal API application
- Using resource files
- Integrating localization in...
