You can get the VC++ compiler freely by downloading the .Net SDK from the Microsoft website. However it is the compiler only and I'm not sure It'll be a real help for your language pack

You may avoid boring painful compiling work by just playing with resources:
1/ Take an existing language DLL, lets say a translation into gibberish
2/ Extract resources from winamp.exe (which should be more or less in english )
3/ Replace the gibberish resources in the DLL by the ones from Winamp
4/ Translate the english strings into your language (you may have skipped the third step if you were able to translate directly from gibberish!)
5/ Rename the DLL and you're done

Look for the "resource hacker" tool on Google. It's very easy to use to play with resources, it costs no money and generally makes a good job.
