VB.Net Code Generation

Dear Experts,

I have spent a few hours looking at the code generation capabilities of Visual Studio from a UML class diagram. I noticed that Visual Studio 2010 and 2012 have T4 templates only for C# and so the generated classes are in C#. My question is - Is there a way to generate VB.Net code from T4 templates? The most desirable solution for me will be a repository of VB.Net T4 templates or class, enum, struct etc. just as the ones defined for C#.

I have used tools like CodeSmith to generate C# code and so I am not looking for a code generator in general. My question is specifically for UML model to code generation in Visual Studio .Net.

Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the great suggestions. I was hoping for a resource that can supply the equivalent VB.Net templates but looks like the options are:
- Create VB.Net templates from ground up.
- Generate C# code from the existing C# templates and transform the code to VB.net using one of the code converters
