Get AutoCAD current culture (language, localization)

Hi,



Out of curiosity I was wondering if there is an easy way to get the current culture for AutoCAD ? I basically would like to automatically translate my own application according to AutoCAD's language.



Of course I tried:



System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture.Name;



But it always returns "en-us" whatever version of AutoCAD is running. Is there an API method which would return the right value ?







PS: by "easy" I mean no registry key such as "ACAD-5001:409" to compare with homemade list...

Exactly what I needed thanks. With whit method I can set the CurrentCulture:



System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(Autodesk.AutoCAD.Runtime.SystemObjects.DynamicLinker.ProductLcid);
