The language offers no native support for that. It is certainly possible to
write a program that can do so with C# if you have the knowledge to do such
a thing, but the language has no such feature, no language does.

I've never heard of a programming language or library supporting human
language translation. You sure can write a program that does that using C#
if you have the knowledge and time it takes though.

Do you mean the text that is displayed to a user or just some text. If you
want just some text, try www.babbelfish.com to translate it.

If you mean the text in a program, one of the problems of having this
translated automatically is that it may not make sense in the resulting
language. Or it may take up a lot less/more space than the source language
(German is notorious for that). What I've seen people do is define each and
every string in a string array and then have the different languages be
different spots in the array. So say English would always be 0, Japanese
would be 1, German 2, ...
