Did you ever try to add the resource in source code and compile Kendo library by yourself?
I will attach a batch file for compiling and creating a NuGet-package and swiss resources de-CH (2016.3.1028) to this answer.
- The batch must reach a new Version of nugget.exe in the Folder C:\Tools and has to be in the folder with the solution file Kendo.Mvc.sln.
- The resource file must be copied in the folder ...\Kendo.Mvc\Kendo.Mvc\Resources and be added to the project.
- Kendo.Mvc.nuspec is needed to force nuget to copy the satellite dll of the swiss resource in the package. Place that file in the folder with the .csproj file (Kendo.Mvc\Kendo.Mvc).
I hope it helps....
