Summary

It's a small world, after all. And the culture-specific features in .NET have helped to make it that way, at least for your software. I'm still amazed that I'm able to use Japanese on my English version of Microsoft Windows. (I first had to enable support for East Asian languages in the Control Panel's Regional and Language Options applet.) And now it's not just Windows or Microsoft Office that can automatically shift with the current culture. Politicians can do it, too. Oops, I mean that your own applications can do it, too. By taking advantage of culture-specific resources and the automatic and manual formatting features included with .NET, you'll soon be selling your snazzy business application in six of the seven continents.
