Using resource files
Our minimal API now supports globalization, so it can switch cultures based on the request. This means that we can provide localized messages to callers, for example, when communicating validation errors. This feature is based on the so-called resource files (

These resource files are exactly the same as they have been since the early versions of .NET.

.resx files. More information about this topic is available at https://github.com/dotnet/AspNetCore.Docs/issues...
