You can do that with ResHacker: just select the dialogs you want to see on the left-side tree,
and double-click on the menu you want to check (or single-click and use "show dialog"); what't nice
is that you can modify the dialog/widgets sizes and check "live" the results in a preview window.

Of course, the buttons won't have any action, but hey, you're translating, not trying to verify that, e.g.,
the buttons work correctly.

If you find a better way, please tell me.
