A satellite assembly is a compiled library that contains localizable resources such as strings, bitmaps, etc. The symbol renaming process might require updating resources names, mainly due to usage of classes depending on information extracted from a resource having identical name. It's recommended that you include all satellite assemblies in your project so that can update the resource names.
