Multi language tooltips in Windows forms

P: n/a
I am working on an application which needs localization. I am
able to localize all the controls on the form except the tool tips. I
searched alot on google, but was unable to find some sample
application. Does anyone here have an idea for implementing
localization easily for tool tips in windows forms application ?

Another question is about the procedure to implement
localization in winforms application. I have built a class library
which has a method named ApplyCulture. This method takes an argument
of form object by ref and then I iterate through controls collection
to set strings retrieved from database. This is so because I wanted to
store my key / value pairs for multilanguage in database instead of
RESX files. So now the actual question is, whether my approach is
optimal and obvious ? Or is there anything I can do to make it
optimal. Also, when you add a RESX file, how does the strings change
when you change UICulture property of current thread.

Any help would be appreciated.
