You can look into tutorials of localization from this URL.


For setting up the default locale of the system.

Go to control pane -> Regional Options

- From the language settings check "Indic"
- Your Locale to Hindi. This will change the system locale to Hindi.

Restart the system. After from task bar icon you can toggle the default locales.

Setting up Culture programmatically in VB.NET will be done by this way.

Imports System.Globalization
Imports System.Threading;

'In the code this code in the OnInit/load events
Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUIculture = new Cultureinfo("hi") 'for setting up default UI culture to Hindi
Thread.CurrentThread.Currentculture = new Cultureinfo("hi") 'for setting up default culture to Hindi

These are the parameters while affects culture of the system.
     - Picked up from the GetUserDefaultLCID API
     - Also affected by change to Control Panel -> Regional Options -> Set Locale
     - Set by GetUserDefaultUILanguage on Windows 2000 and Windows XP where the end users can set their UI language
     - If UI language is not set, set by system default installed language – which is the language of OS’s resources

Also you look in to this URL for detailed globalization information.
