MSDN explains how to create Satellite assemblies for culture specific resources. But this seems to be looking at Text, icon and Images.
Is there an article that explains how to provide culture specific Winforms.

For example the layout of a dialog may be significantly diffrent between English, Arabic and Japanese due to the way text is displayed (Left/Right v. Right/Left v. Vertical). Simply changing labels in a dialog may not be enough. Can a dialog be loaded as a resource? A Penal? a Winform? ...

Thanks

The following sample tells u how to create a satellite assembly. U can refer this

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpguide/html/cpconcreatingsatelliteassemblies.asp

I don't think that there has to be a separate template of windows forms for each culture.

What u can do is u can have a configuration file , which according to the culture selected specifies the text value of the controls. It should also contain information to resize the controls, by explicitly specifing the length of the control text
