I have some userforms created in English, how do I code it such that using an option button, I can switch / change all the text to another language?

There is no simple option. You'd have to create a table of the correct text for each control so that you can switch between them.

I mean that you will need a list of the controls and what their text should be.

No, not really.

If you make a list in a two column range with the control name in the first column and the text you want in the next column, then you need a loop something like this:

Code:
for each cell in range("A2:A10")
me.control(cell.value).caption = cell.offset(, 1).Value
next
If you have different types of controls (I've assumed labels and buttons) you'd need to adjust for that.

can't the text be extracted from a text file instead of worksheet?
by the way, how do I address those ones in the msgbox?

Yes it can, it just makes the code more complicated.

You'll have to deal with those individually.

Again, no. I'm afraid that's above and beyond the kind of thing I do on forums like this, as I don't have that kind of time.
