     This project is basically a simple text editor. What makes it unique and a useful learning tool is that it supports 13 languages and 19 cultures. I started this project using Visual Studio .NET 2003, but put it aside be of the difficultly of access data on one form from another. This is no longer a problem with Visual Basic 2005. I’ve also been able to improve the looks of the program by using the new menus and toolstrip toolbars. The method I chose is not the only one available for globalization, but it seemed easier to understand and the resource files could be edited within the IDE. A disadvantage of this approach is that a folder is created in your installation folder for each language and culture. I can’t take credit for all the code. The find-replace dialog and printing code are largely based on old Microsoft samples converted to VB 2005. You will notice also that all of the common dialogs are in English. On a localized version of Windows, they would appear in the correct language. The program also defaults to the language installed on the computer.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
