How to manage locale string resources in nopCommerce

Today, we will discuss, how to manage locale string resources of each store for any published language. The benefit of using locale string resource is that if you have multi-store or if you allows your customers (or users) to view your store site in different languages, you can easily set up a resource string with its value and based on the language, it will change automatically instead of you saving each languages text as hard code.

In order to manage the string resources, go to: Administration > Configuration > Languages

Select t he language for which you would like to add or manage the string resource. In this windows, you will see the list of languages you have installed for your store site.

In the case of this example, we will be choosing "English language":
