Setting CurrentUICulture is enough.

You gotta add German resources like:


ResourceManager rm = new ResourceManager ("myApp",
Assembly.GetExecutingAssebly ());

Console.WriteLine (rm.GetString ("id_of_the_string"));

The id_of_the_string shoule be that way if you use MS resource format,
but you can use .po and other formats that allow using spaces
