Extending the resource bundle and properties files

Introduced in Feature Pack 2 In this lesson, you update an existing extended properties file containing text for the new Versions and General tabs. A properties file is a resource bundle that contains translatable text that displays in the user interface. Resource bundles contain locale-specific objects. By using resource bundle files, text can be easily translated into different languages.
