Globalization and localization in ASP.NET Core not working (no error) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I followed .net core article to create <g class="gr_ gr_44 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="44" id="44">multi culture</g> application in asp.net core. I'm able to change the culture on request properly but I'm always getting English text. 

    I'm not getting any error. how to diagnose this kind of issue??
