      Hi there,
      Note that for this to work, you will need to have at least 2 language versions of the same version of Visual Studio. For example VS 2010 Professional English and VS 2010 Professional Spanish.

      To set the language that is used for the UI text in Visual Studio:

      1. From the Tools menu, click Options.
      2. In the Options dialog box, within Environment, select International Settings.
      3. In the Language drop-down list, select the language for the UI text to display in the development environment. In this case, Spanish.
      4. Re-start Visual Studio
