Hello!
First my best regards to developers that work on this project.
I have a problem with portal localization. As I Understand MonoX distributes with one default language. So I need to develop portal on the 3 languages with opportunity for the users to chose prefer language. How can achive this goal? I tried to go to the portal localization section of dashboard and see tthis "To enable portal localization you need to enable the database provider in the web.config". What that means?

Hi,

if you are developer I suggest that you use resource files to localize the MonoX to preferred languages, because it will give you look and feel you are used to, and you will have more control while upgrading etc. MonoX comes with few built-in languages, some of them are fully localized (English - 100%, Croatian - 100%, Turkish - 90%, Italian - 70-90%, etc.). MonoX localization is provider based and you can work with ResourceManager provider (Used resx files) and DBResourceManager provider (used DB as a resource storage). 

1. DBResourceManager - if you choose DB provider you need to set the default provider in the web.config and the Localization dashboard screen will be available to you 
2. ResourceManager - if you choose ASP.NET resource manager provider then you can edit resource files manually and change the resources (or add new languages). MonoX package is compiled and prepared for usage so resource files aren't saved they are compiled. To overcome this issue we have prepared a Localization solution inside the package where you can load them and translate. You can find the localization solution here "/MonoX/Samples/Solution/LocalizationSolution/" where you can open a "LocalizationSolution.sln" and start translating them. To deploy them you need to copy compiled resource assemblies to "bin" folder. 

If you have any other question don't hesitate to contact us.

First of all congratulation for you effort and in special
for the quality of the support. It is one of the strength points of this
solution that I will recommend it further as a platform for one of my next
projects.

In the meantime I have tried to load your example with
language packages and it seems that solution show me that some files are
missing. Those files are included into solution but cannot be found into
solution package. Do you know something about this? There is a way to fix it?
Can I remove those files from solution, or I need the missing files?
