Synopses & Reviews
Designed for programmers and ISVs looking to extend their expertise and capitalize on burgeoning international markets, this book explains how to create localized versions of Windows-based software using Visual C++ 6.0. Until now, no programming reference has comprehensively addressed internationalization issues, but this guide deftly addresses the myriad character-set, interface, and programming considerations involved -- all in a single volume. Readers get practical, detailed information for utilizing the built-in internationalization and localization support in Visual C++. Discussion covers everything from conceptual concerns -- such as working with non-Roman alphabets and right-to-left (and other) screen orientations -- to the specifics of using MFC, ATL, COM, and other tools when developing international products.
