How to CultureInfo in C#

The CultureInfo class helps you create your application that supports multiple languages. It belongs to the System.Globalization namespace.

To get current culture name you can use the following c# code.

var name = Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.Name;

and don't forget to include the namespace below at the top.

using System.Threading;

You can create the culture for your application as the following c# code.

static void InitCulture()
    CultureInfo cul = new CultureInfo(("en-US"));
    cul.NumberFormat.CurrencyDecimalSeparator = ".";
    cul.NumberFormat.CurrencyGroupSeparator = ",";
    cul.NumberFormat.NumberDecimalSeparator = ".";
    cul.NumberFormat.NumberGroupSeparator = ",";
    cul.NumberFormat.PercentDecimalSeparator = ".";
    cul.NumberFormat.PercentGroupSeparator = ",";
    cul.DateTimeFormat.ShortDatePattern = "dd/MM/yyyy";
    Application.CurrentCulture = cul;

then call the InitCulture method in the main thread

/// <summary>
/// The main entry point for the application.
/// </summary>
static void Main()
    Application.Run(new frmMainFluentDesign());
