How to: Specify a Culture in Text Templates
Updated: July 2008
The culture directive lets you specify the culture that you want to use for text templates. The format used is ISO-3166, for example en-US for United States English. For more information, see Directive Syntax (Domain-Specific Languages) and Using the CultureInfo Class.
To specify a culture for generating an output string
Add the following directive to the template.
In this example, the French culture is specified.
<#@ template culture="fr-FR" #>
If you already have a template directive, add the culture parameter to the end of your existing directive.
The following example converts 32.45 to the French culture using the "fr-FR" value. The example replaces the decimal point with a comma to produce the following output.
I have 32,45 Francs in my wallet.
