Sandbox refers to an editor where you can do pretty much anything I think... I'm not really a modder myself.

The Cryengine developer pipeline has two stages. First is preparing your assets such as 3D models and textures. That part is done in outside programs like 3ds Max and Photoshop. The second stage is assembling the assets into a game level. That is done in the Sandbox Editor program. The Editor runs on the same game engine as the final game does. So things look like they will in the final version, and you can drop a character into the scene at any time in game mode and test how things are working. Crytek calls this "what you see is what you play".

Besides showing you what the level looks like in final form, there are tons of windows you can open for specialized purposes, and helpers that are invisible in the game, like an "area trigger" that starts an action when you enter the area.

What's the scripting language with CryEngine 3 ?

The scripting languages are Lua and C++ for CryEngine 3

Most scripting is usually done using the visual "Flowgraph" system that can be compared to UnrealEd's "Kismet". AI and entity behaviour is defined in Lua.
While you'll have access to some C++ code and headers, still C++ isn't a scripting language :P

Yes sorry, thank you for correcting my mistake :)
I had not heard about the CryEngine 3 having a visual flowgraph system ...I would be interested to see that.

XML is also used for some of the other bits and pieces.
