    What you looking for is globalization.

    I am already using Globalization, but my problem is that i want too change the  default CurrencyGroupSeparato for a special language.

    I have tried this:

     Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo(Language);
            Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture(Language);
            if(Language == "ru-RU")
                Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture.NumberFormat.CurrencyGroupSeparator = ".";
                Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture.NumberFormat.CurrencyGroupSeparator = ".";            
    But i get a runtime error "Instance is read-only"

    Try this.

    NumberFormatInfo nfi = new CultureInfo( "ru-RU", true ).NumberFormat;

    nfi.CurrencyGroupSeparator = ".";

    In my masterpage i am setting the CultureInfo to the chosen language, the same place i want to change the CurrencyGroupSeparator for the Russian language. So it wil work on all the childpages to the masterpage.

    Your example isn't changing the GroupSepeartor in the way i have explained abow.
