    Hi.
    In the help-documentation it stand that RadGrid supports built-in localization through Global resources and the follow steps are:

    1. Create a new resource file or copy an existing one from the App_GlobalResources in your installation folder
    2. Add the resource file (resx) file to the App_GlobalResources folder in your application. Note that you should have two files as a bare minimum - RadGrid.Main.resx and the localization file itself - for example RadGrid.Main.en-GB.resx
    3. Set the Culture property to the corresponding language (for example: it-IT, en-GB, ja-JP and so on)

    I want to take a copy of of RadGrid.Main.resx. But where can I get this file? I have look in the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 2010\App_GlobalResources and can not find it there. To make a new resource file, it stand in the documentation also to take a copy of this file. I could of course make a new resource file with out take a copy but than i have to spend time to find out what the names should be. (I am also interest to make others resources file for other controllers so it will be much easier to make copies of this files.)

    In step 3 I should set the culture property to the relevant language but RadGrid have no Culture property. For others contollers like RadEditor it is the language property and others have a CulturInfo but RadGrid does not have this properties. So what am I missing?

    Hope anyone can help me.

    Hello Cecilie,

    Please make sure that you have the latest release of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX (Q2 2010 Beta) - this is a new functionality that isn't available in the previous versions.

    I am using RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX (Q2 2010 Beta) but I cannot still find any language or culture property.
    What is the name of the property you are talking about?

    The Telerik install folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 2013\App_GlobalResources\ only contains language neutral resource files except for RadEditor, RadImageEditor and RadSpell which have French and German resources.

    Does Telerik intend to provide resource files for major languages for other controls such as RadGrid?

    It would make a lot more sense for Telerik to provide these once rather than each client to have to arrange for translation thereby duplicating and wasting that effort.

    Thanks

    Hello John,

    You can find more languages in the Code Library section. Example:

    Can you send me the complete resx file for the grid? We have our own implementation for localization and some of the resources on resx file(included on the installer) are missing which crashes our app.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    The base localization files are available in a subfolder where you have installed the suite. The resources are updated on a regular basis so it would be best if you get them from your local installation. Of course I can attach them for you here, but first I need to know what version of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX is used in your project.
