I need to change the language of the web page based on drop down list selected value and i came across the UICulture method, which uses the resource file to change the Constant data in the web page. What method do i need to use, if i need to change the grid-view data which is fetched from the data base.

Thanks in advance

You cannot change data from database by just changing the drop down value.
You need to do this translation yourself - build a resource file that does the mapping of data to appropriate text in the other language.

Yes you can do that provided you do all your translations before binding.

However, this does not consider database localization.
