A simple library that allows for fluent definition of a string and its various translations. When accessing a defined localized string, Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture will be used to provide the relevant translated value. You can also request a value for a specific culture.

Useful for short strings. If strings are getting longer -- consider switching to time-tested technique of using resource files.

Here is how easy it is to define and use a LocalizedString:

var sampleString = new LocalizedString("chicken")
    .InCanadianEnglish("chicken, eh")
    .InCanadianFrench("éh poulet")
    .In("de", "das bird");

// you can also do
sampleString["en-CA"] = "chicken, eh";
// this will output the value based on Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture. If no value is found, Invariant value is used.

When defining a localized string, invariant value must always be supplied. This is the same as for string type. Further to the invariant value, you are free to add translations for various languages.

If you would like to get a value for a particular locale, you can use


// or


If no suitable value is found for that locale, a value for en will be solicited. If no value is found, then invariant value will be returned.
