is it possbile to change locale of resource dll without having access to its source?


I want to change the locale of a resource dll (vc++) to Arabic but the problem is the target application is not compatible with non-latin charactercode and it will render the text like following picture :
one way to solve the issue is to change the locale of the windows but I don't like this approach as my ultimate plan is not requiring any OS modification.
So my question is : is there any way to change the locale of DLL or an application without accessing/modifying source code so its going to accept non-latin languages?

Easiest way is to use a translation program like Sizulizer. Does everything for you almost.
