They simply duplicate the whole file for each language.  Windows isn't
capable of laying out a dialog according to the text on it - all controls
are absolutely positioned.  That means that you need to manually expand
all the controls to double their English size when you translate to
German.  8-)

You can't really edit the things in a text editor, but there may well be
free .rc editors out there (nothing obvious from a 2-second Google, but
there may be something).
