Summary: In the video, we talk about localization. When creating a web
site, you might have users from all over the world. Every user would prefer to
see text, dates, and currencies in a language that he/she can understand. For
that purpose we use the Culture and UICulture classes. The Culture class helps
us with string, date, and currency formatting. And the UICulture class helps us
with which resource files are loaded for the page. We will see how we can set
the Culture and UICulture manually for a page. Then how we can set that for all
pages using web.config. Then we will see how to set the Culture and UICulture
using auto-detecting the information coming from the browser (Request).
Finally, we will see how to get the languages from the browser (Tools –
Internet Options – Languages) and display them on the page.

and simplified design to illustrate the key points.
