open file dialog - "add"

The open file dialog control in Windows forms has an "Open" button. Is
there a way to change the text of the button to something other than
"Open"?

Hi,

The open file dialog box uses the text from the language of the OS.

Be aware that this is annoying for users when it is another text/behaviour
as usual. The same as setting the brake pedal of a car right and the
throttle left.

I hope this gives an idea

I assume that this can be done using a dialog hook ('WM_INITDIALOG').
