I was wondering, is there anything wrong with localizing apps programmatically? (i.e. without using resource files?
Can't I just detect the user's locale and adjust string variables accordingly? That seems much simpler to me.

The resource files do that automatically. It takes the local of the current user and chooses the appropriate resource file.
If you meant something like take the resources that you have, send them to something like Google Translate, then display them. That could work, but that is also a good amount of unnecessery network usage. If you cached it then it would be better but it's up to you.
