Posted by Rahul Kharde at 8:19 PM

Satellite assemblies are used to build multi-linguistic applications. Application which has built in supportive of more than one human readable language is known as multi-linguistic applications.

• Satellite Assemblies doesn’t contain any Data.
• Satellite assembly is containing cultural information.
• Satellite assembly mainly used for to display information based on the Cultural setting of browser or region.

Suppose you developed your application in an English (en-US) locale. Now, your application has multilingual support. When you deploy your code in different location, for example in India, you want to show text, label messages in the national language (local language) which is other than English.
Satellite assemblies give this flexibility. You create any simple text file with translated strings, create resources, and put them into the bin\debug folder. That's it. The next time, your code will read the CurrentCulture property of the current thread and accordingly load the appropriate resource.
