In my desktop I have a settings dialog that after I change the app language there's a label text gets too big for its space. I want to know if it is good practice to resize the window after a language change in case something goes out alignment in that particular language.

It's a better experience for the user to see a dialog that appropriately fits its contents, vs. making text smaller or having labels overflow their containers. It also gives the user a sense that the application is written for them, rather than geared toward a language they might not speak.

  • So your answer is yes, i should resize?
