Weekday names in any language

The System.Globalization.CultureInfo object exposes two properties, NumberFormat and DateTimeFormat, which return information about how numbers and dates are formatted according to a given locale. For example, consider this code:

' How do you spell "Sunday" in German?' First, create a CultureInfo object for German/Germany.' (Note that you must pass a string in the form "locale-COUNTRY" if'  a given language is spoken in multiple countries.)Dim ciDe As New CultureInfo("de-DE")' Next, get the corresponding DateTimeFormatInfo object.Dim dtfi As DateTimeFormatInfo = ciDe.DateTimeFormat' Here's the answer:Console.WriteLine(dtfi.GetDayName(DayOfWeek.Sunday))   ' => Sonntag

You can learn which cultures are available on your machine with the GetCultures shared method, which returns an array of all the installed cultures:

' Get info on all the installed cultures.Dim ciArr() As CultureInfo = CultureInfo.GetCultures(CultureTypes.AllCultures)' Print abbreviation and English name of each culture.Dim c As CultureInfoFor Each c In ciArr    Console.WriteLine(c.Name & " (" & c.EnglishName & ")")Next
