3 Apr 20231 minute to read

Localization is the process of translating the application resources into different languages for specific cultures. The SfPopup can be localized by adding a resource file.

Setting CurrentUICulture to the application

Application culture can be changed by setting the CurrentUICulture in the App.xaml.cs file.

using Syncfusion.Maui.Popup;
using System.Resources;

public partial class App : Application
   public App()
      CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo("fr-FR");
      //// ResXPath => Full path of the resx file; For example : //SfPopupResources.ResourceManager = new ResourceManager
      // ("MauiPopupDemo.Resources.SfPopup", Application.Current.GetType().Assembly);

      SfPopupResources.ResourceManager = new ResourceManager(ResXPath, Application.Current.GetType().Assembly);
      MainPage = new MainPage();


The required resx files with Build Action as EmbeddedResource (File name should contain culture code) into the Resources folder.

Localize application level

To localize the Popup based on the CurrentUICulture using the resource files, follow these steps.

  1. Create a new folder named Resources in the application.

  2. Right-click on the Resources folder, select Add, then NewItem.

  3. In the Add New Item wizard, select the Resource File option and name the filename as SfPopup.<culture name>.resx. For example, give the name as SfPopup.fr-FR.resx for French culture.

  4. The culture name indicates the name of the language and country.


  1. Now, select Add option to add the resource file in the Resources folder.


  1. Add the Name or Value pair in the Resource Designer of SfPopup.fr-FR.resx file and change its corresponding value to corresponding culture.
