Hello,

During working on localization issues in Codejock library I fonund that to apply translation for Ribbon Backstage Page we need create it with calling CreateIndirect(). With RibbonSample this looks like:
CMainFrame::CreateBackstage()
{
.....
    if (!m_pagePrint.GetSafeHwnd())
    {
        m_pagePrint.CreateIndirect(XTPResourceManager()->LoadDialogTemplate(CXTPRibbonBackstagePagePrint::IDD), this);
I have added such example in RibbonSample.
For using localized resources DLL you can use next code:
struct {
    WORD wLanguage;
    LPCTSTR lpszEncoding;
    LPCTSTR lpszCaption;
    LPCTSTR lpszDLLName;
}
encoding[] = 
{
    {MAKELANGID(LANG_ARABIC,    SUBLANG_ARABIC_SAUDI_ARABIA),  _T("windows-1256"), _T("Arabic (Saudi Arabia)"), _T("ResourceArSa")},
    {MAKELANGID(LANG_BULGARIAN, SUBLANG_DEFAULT),              _T("windows-1251"), _T("Bulgarian"),             _T("ResourceBg")},
    {MAKELANGID(LANG_CZECH,     SUBLANG_DEFAULT),              _T("windows-1250"), _T("Czech"),                 _T("ResourceCs")},
    {MAKELANGID(LANG_DANISH,    SUBLANG_DEFAULT),              _T("windows-1252"), _T("Danish"),                _T("ResourceDa")},
    {MAKELANGID(LANG_GERMAN,    SUBLANG_GERMAN),               _T("windows-1252"), _T("German (Germany)"),      _T("ResourceDe")},

    {MAKELANGID(LANG_ENGLISH,   SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US),           _T("windows-1252"), _T("English (United States)"),_T("ResourceEn")},

    CString strPath;

//set resource file for strings
    XTPResourceManager()->SetResourceManager(new CXTPResourceManager());
    XTPResourceManager()->SetResourceFile(strPath);
        
    ::SetThreadLocale(MAKELCID(Locale, SORT_DEFAULT)); 
    ::_tsetlocale(LC_ALL, szLocale);

    //CString strTitle;
    //XTPResourceManager()->LoadString(&strTitle, XTP_ID_RIBBONCONTROLQUICKACCESS);

Translations are saved in folder 'res\Resource_**.rc' for some controls, for example Calendar
c:\Program Files (x86)\Codejock Software\MFC\Xtreme ToolkitPro v18.0.1\Source\Calendar\res\Resource_zh_TW.rc
These .rc files should be opened with codepage as specified at the begining of every file
#if !defined(AFX_RESOURCE_DLL) || defined(AFX_TARG_ENU)
#ifdef _WIN32
LANGUAGE LANG_ENGLISH, SUBLANG_ENGLISH_US
#pragma code_page(1252)
#endif //_WIN32

then it can be compiled to separate DLL for every language by building project
c:\Program Files (x86)\Codejock Software\MFC\Xtreme ToolkitPro v18.2.0\Workspace\Resource\Resource.dsw

If you know any issues with translations please write here or on support.codejock.com
