How do I localize data annotations in Blazor server-side and WebAssembly (client-side) applications?

Platform: Blazor| Category : Forms and validation, General

Data annotation localization in Blazor server-side and WebAssembly (client-side) apps is achieved by referencing the Resource class localized string. Follow these steps to achieve this:

  1. Add the required localized error messages to the Resource file in the Resource folder.
  2. In the validation attribute, set the ErrorMessageResourceType as typeof(Resource).
  3. Assign the required validation message to the ErrorMessageResourceName property.


@page "/"
@using {{ApplicationName}}.Resource
@using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations;

<EditForm Model="@_employee" OnValidSubmit="HandleValidSubmit">
    <DataAnnotationsValidator />
    <ValidationSummary />
    <InputText id="name" @bind-Value="_employee.Name" />
    <button type="submit">Submit</button>

@code {
    public class Employee
        [Required(ErrorMessageResourceName = "RequiredError", ErrorMessageResourceType = typeof(Resource))]
        [StringLength(5, ErrorMessageResourceName = "LengthError", ErrorMessageResourceType = typeof(Resource))]
        public string Name { get; set; }

    private Employee _employee = new Employee();

    private void HandleValidSubmit()
