There is no such class available in the .NET Framework. Note that
translation between languges is not an easy task. Maybe 3rd-party libraries
exist for this purpose, but I do not know such libraries.

There is, but you have to write it!

Sorry, I couldn't resist. Unfortunately, the closet thing that .NET
has is globalization settings, but even then they are a pain to set up
and you still have to supply the translations.

Thanks,

You would place a webbrowser control to your form and set URL to any
online translation service such as:
http://babelfish.altavista.com/

Hope this helps,

Seth,.

The globalization settings have nothing to do with translations it only
tells which characters and calendars are used and how date and times are
represented in a string.

It is not as easy as you write.

The "globalization settings" are used to determine which resources should be
loaded (based on the culture).

You may want to elaborate a bit so that we are 100% sure about what you are
looking for...

Else your best bet would be more likely to use a translation web service or
use an API such as :
