Remarks

The CultureNativeName property corresponds to the NativeName property.

The value of this property is the same, regardless of the language version of the .NET Framework.

The culture's full name might not display properly if the system is not set to display the culture's language correctly. For example, if the CultureName property is "ja-JP" for Japanese (Japan), the CultureNativeName property does not display correctly on a system that is set to English only. However, multilingual operating systems, such as Windows 2000, display the CultureNativeName property correctly.
