This is the correct, sorry
private void RefreshResources(Control ctrl, ComponentResourceManager res)
        {
            ctrl.SuspendLayout();
            res.ApplyResources(ctrl, ctrl.Name, CultureInfo.CurrentCulture);
            foreach (Control control in ctrl.Controls)
                RefreshResources(control, res); // recursion
            ctrl.ResumeLayout(false);
        }
        private void button5_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ComponentResourceManager resources = new ComponentResourceManager(typeof(Login));
            resources.ApplyResources(this, "en-US");
            RefreshResources(this, resources);
        }

        private void button4_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            ComponentResourceManager resources = new ComponentResourceManager(typeof(Login));
            resources.ApplyResources(this, "pt-BR");
            RefreshResources(this, resources);
        }
