	{
		Console.WriteLine("Name:{0} ; SpecificName:{1}; FullName:{2}{3}", cultureInformation.Name, cultureInformation.SpecificName, cultureInformation.Fullname, Environment.NewLine);
	}
	Console.Read();
}

public static List<CultureInformation> GetCultureData()
{
	var cultureInformations = (from cultureInfo in CultureInfo.GetCultures(CultureTypes.AllCultures) let specificName = CultureInfo.CreateSpecificCulture(cultureInfo.Name).Name select new CultureInformation() {Fullname = cultureInfo.EnglishName, Name = cultureInfo.Name, SpecificName = specificName}).ToList();
	return cultureInformations.OrderBy(data => data.Name).ToList();
}

public sealed class CultureInformation
{
	public string Name { get; set; }
	public string SpecificName { get; set; }
	public string Fullname { get; set; }
