Can you be more specific? Do you want to make dialog boxes that use, ie. Chinese?

Let me explain you more clearly.
say, you have a menu like this:

China  France  Germany

When I press China, a sentence is to be displayed in chinese language.
When I press France, a sentence is to be displayed in French language.
When I press Germany, a sentence is to be displayed in German language.

Hope this time I made it very clear. Expecting your reply
Thanks in Advance

Assume your language-specific sentences are store in Database table or files. When you select a particular language, you load the sentence from database table or file, then show it on your program. If you have the static control to show your sentence, you can call SetDlgItemText( ...); If you want to modify string in menu item, do the following:

CString strMyChineseString;

//Assume you have function to get your Chinese string.
strMyChineseString = YourFunctionToGetYourChineseString();

//ID_SETUP_LANGEUAGE_CHEINSE is the ID of your menu item.
pMenu->ModifyMenu( ID_SETUP_LANGUAGE_CHINESE, MF_BYCOMMAND | MF_STRING, ID_SETUP_LANGUAGE_CHINESE, strChineseString );


Do I answer your question?
