Call the Win32 GetLocaleInfo function as follows to create a human-readable string name from pLanguage. LOCALE_SENGLANGUAGE is the locale information type, pszString is a pointer to a buffer to receive the requested data, and cbSize specifies the size of pszString.

GetLocaleInfo(*pLanguage, LOCALE_SENGLANGUAGE, pszString, cbSize);
