Translating to CurrentCulture

I note that the function WeekdayName returns the name of the day in the current culture.
ie French returns  - lundi

What other built-in translations are available?

It seems that the MsgBox constants are always in English, but is there any other way of translating Yes etc?

No it wont help you with MessageBox, it works in case of Dates , Currency and Money. For displaying messages in another languages you need Localisation for more details please follow the link

Not possible without localistaion, u have to have to resx file in your project, then you have to give string as Monday and its value as lundi. Then in your code you have to pick it through resource manager.
