    What about a tool in the Designer-menu, where you can edit Key-Value-Maps for multilanguage text-ressources? The ressources could be saved in a textfile, same name as the *.bal-file for the view, but with typical endings for every supported language. So a "main.bal" file could match "main_EN.dat", "main_DE.dat", ... (or something else than *.dat) depending on the default language.

    Every defined object in the designer showes the text value, if there is a key matching the object name (like Button1, Label1, ...) in the ressource file. If not, it showes as usual its Text property.

    Also in code you can access the ressource file, just loading it to a map, with the default, or with a choosen language. So you can handle the multilanguage ressources also in runtime, for example in Msgbox or other runtime text. Also for other reasons a Key-Value Map editor could be very useful.
