A while back we announced the release of Entity Framework 4.1 (EF 4.1). Today we are making a series of language packs available that provide localized resources for EF 4.1.

What’s a Language Pack?

The language packs add a set of localized resources to an existing EF 4.1 install. Each language pack contains the following localized resources:

  • Intellisense files for DbContext and Code First API surface
    Once installed these are automatically picked up by Visual Studio based on your culture settings
  • Satellite assembly containing localized exception messages
    Once installed the localized messages are picked up at runtime based on the culture of the executing application
  • DbContext item templates for Model First & Database First
    Once installed these are automatically picked up by Visual Studio based on your culture settings

What Languages?

Language packs are available in the following languages:

  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Russian
  • Spanish

Installing Language Packs

You can install one or more language packs by downloading a standalone installer, the language packs require you to have EF 4.1 installed.

Support

This release can be used in a live operating environment subject to the terms included in the installer. The ADO.NET Entity Framework Forum can be used for questions relating to this release.
