Gets the text that is associated with an item and specified by the identifier parameter. Such an identifier can be the string conversion of an enumeration that is associated with an item (such as RibbonFormattingTab.RibbonItem.TXITEM_Paste). By default CultureInfo.CurrentUiCulture determines the language of the text resources. If no resource translation is provided, that corresponds to the current ui culture or the value of the culture parameter, the returned text is based on the English resources.
