    setting culture to read form a dictionary

    I have an Umbraco V4.10 website, which is multi-langual.

    Now I want to setup a comparison page, with multiple translations of a dictionary.
    So I want the value for the English translation next to the Dutch translation.

    Only problem is I can't seem to find how to read a value from a key in another culture then set.
    Is there a way to change the culture of to add the culture to the read function of getting the dictionary value?

    Greetz, Patrick

    Hi Patrick,

    You could make use of Culture info to check the current culture of the page, depending on this page then display something.

     @using System.Globalization;
    Domain[] domains = umbraco.library.GetCurrentDomains(@Model.Id);
    var currentLanguage = CultureInfo.CurrentUICulture.TwoLetterISOLanguageName.ToLower();
    if(!currentLanguage.Contains(Fr){ @umbraco.library.GetDictionaryItem("something"); }
