First, I assume that you have downloaded the NodeXL source code from the Downloads tab at  Look for the latest "NodeXL Source Code" download under "Other Downloads" on the right side of the page.  (We no longer use the Source Code tab.)

I don't believe any of the interface is hidden; it is all open in the source code files.  As a small example, the source code for the About dialog box can be found at NodeXL\ExcelTemplate\Dialogs\About.  In the AboutDialog.Designer.cs file in that folder, the dialog box's text is specified as English strings.  As another example, the text used in the NodeXL tab in the Excel ribbon can be found in NodeXL\ExcelTemplate\Ribbon\Ribbon.Designer.cs.

Unfortunately, the text is scattered in multiple files and all those files will have to be edited to convert NodeXL to Vietnamese.  Ideally, all of the text would be stored in resource files to make it easier to localize the program, but we have a very small programming staff (one person) and we have not devoted the big chunk of time that would be necessary to enable localization.

If there really is something that is hidden, tell me what it is.
