    I have a site with several languages and a language selector. I need to change the site language by code without changing the url.

    Currently I'm doing this

    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = culture;
    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = culture;

    This works for labels inside the page, but it always renders the default language version of the page and not the one I need.

    Is there any way to achieve this without appending the language prefix to the url?
