There were a lot of tricks when the entire windows system ran in 512K of memory. Resources were designed to quickly load, do something with them for the GUI and allow for a quick memory reclamation. E.g. the resources for a popup menu might only be retained in memory until the user selected an item or cancelled the menu.

Throw the resources into a DLL separate from the UI exe and that is the only thing that needs to be translated.

Exe loads the right DLL based on locales.

rc- resource compiler was always a separate make.exe step before linkage.

The slowest part of any GUI is usually the user.

MFC is just a convience layer on top of the C based OS layers.

I am agreement with another poster (maybe you?) that the backwards compatibility for Windows has been incredible. I still use a utility on Win10 that predates the scroll wheels on mice! It barfs on double byte encoding, but use UTF-8 for most items so it is fine.
