Gotcha – Implicit sitemap localization resx belong in App_GlobalResources

When providing a multi-lingual website you’re likely to want to translate your sitemap files for your menus, footer links, etc.

I tend to store most of my translations using implicit localization techniques whereby you would put your resx in a relative App_LocalResources folder. However, when it comes to SiteMap localization don’t be fooled!

They must all go into the site relative App_GlobalResources.
