CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo Method (String)
Retrieves a cached, read-only instance of a culture using the specified culture name.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
For a list of predefined culture names, see the National Language Support (NLS) API Reference at the Go Global Developer Center.
If name is the name of the current culture, the returned CultureInfo object does not reflect any user overrides. This makes the method suitable for server applications or tools that do not have a real user account on the system and that need to load multiple cultures efficiently.Notes to Callers
