CodePlexProject Hosting for Open Source Software
Jeremy found a good companion to Resource Refactoring tool to make working with localized resource files much easier. Once you created resource files using Resource Refactoring Tool, you can use ResEx to translate resource files in to different cultures. ResEx will automatically create the resource files for the new languages as you add entries. ResEx project seems to be at an early stage of development, but I had no problems with it when I tried it.
You can download ResEx at this link: http://www.papadi.gr/Default.aspx?TabId=290
We just released Resource Refactoring Tool 1.0 to CodePlex, you can download the release from project releases page. A summary of new and updated features in this release is below, you can see the full list of fixed issues in the release page.
We have finished working on the beta version of Resource Refactoring and just posted it to Codeplex. Also with this release Resource Refactoring Tool became a shared source project under MS-PL, so we have published the source code as well. If you want to help development of the tool please go to Getting Started with Development section on the project site.
New features and fixes for this release are:
You can read more about the tool at its Codeplex project page or download the installer directly. Also I want to thank to everyone who sent feedback during the alpha release which had been really useful.
We have just released alpha version of Resource Refactoring Tool for Visual Studio, you can download it from: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=77544. In one line, it provides an easy way to extract hard coded strings from code files to embedded resource files. You can find more details about the tool at its Codeplex page. For the alpha release, we are only releasing a binary download, but for the beta version we are going to release it as a shared source project.
If you have any feedback or suggestions please use the project discussion board.
Now that VSCmdShell is released, I started working on a refactoring power toy to help with converting strings in to resource files as it has to be performed manually now. It is primary feature will be to place selected string in to a resource file and replace it with the code to get that string from the resource file.
If you have any suggestions for the refactoring tool or ideas that would make it easier to work with resource files, please leave a comment to this entry.

Haven't been able to get it working with Visual Studio 2010 on Windows 7. Is there a new release coming some time in the nearer future?
