There is a particular command in .net from which u can get all the supported cultures

Here is an example

Imports System
Imports System.Globalization

Public Class SamplesCultureInfo

   Public Shared Sub Main()

      ' Displays several properties of the neutral cultures.
      Console.WriteLine("CULTURE ISO ISO WIN DISPLAYNAME ENGLISHNAME")
      Dim ci As CultureInfo
      For Each ci In  CultureInfo.GetCultures(CultureTypes.NeutralCultures) 'I am getting only neutral cultures
         Console.Write("{0,-7}", ci.Name)
         Console.Write(" {0,-3}", ci.TwoLetterISOLanguageName)
         Console.Write(" {0,-3}", ci.ThreeLetterISOLanguageName)
         Console.Write(" {0,-3}", ci.ThreeLetterWindowsLanguageName)
         Console.Write(" {0,-40}", ci.DisplayName)
         Console.WriteLine(" {0,-40}", ci.EnglishName)
      Next ci

   End Sub 'Main

End Class 'SamplesCultureInfo

Using this I am getting onlu neutralcultures u can also get

1. AllCultures - by having CultureTypes.AllCultures

2. InstalledWin32Cultures - Cultures that are defined in that particular windows

3. SpecificCultures - Specific to a region

Follow up.

I want to create a multi-language application, i will use these resource files for my application.
Is the culture folder name important?
i mean if i want to create a resource file for english,
do i need to create an exact folder name as the culture?  
like

en-US>
 -international.en-UStxt
 -international.en-US.resx

de-DE>
 -international.de-DEtxt
 -international.de-DE.resx

For example, to support German we would add a folder named de-DEā€”case counts here. Next, add a file with the same prefix as your default file, a .txt suffix, and de-DE separated by a period in between.

Note - de-DE,
i want a list of this folder name, is this nescessary? or i can specify my own folders?
anyways, i just want the recommended folder name

U can give the folder containing the resources files any name. U have to store all the different language resource files there.

Based on the language selected u can opt to read the particular resource file
