This dialog is opened when the Localize (AddNewUICulture) button is used to insert a resource string into a field. Fields that contain a localization string instead of static text can automatically display a translated version of their content according to the culture settings of the current user.


There are two possible ways to add a string:


Create new resource string - directly creates a new resource string. The identifier (key) of the new string will always contain a special prefix (custom. by default).

Use existing resource string - allows the selection of an existing resource string. Only strings that are stored in the database can be chosen. Resource strings contained in .resx files cannot be accessed this way.


More information about localization strings and user interface cultures can be found in Developer's Guide -> Development -> UI cultures and localization.
