    Thanks.

    Sorry I was a little bit confused.
    I found the localization with the default windows mechanism. The language switch can be found on the form...

    Hi Marco, 

    Thank you for writing.

    The approach with the Language property of the form does not apply to the localization mechanism of our controls. There are only six items with predefined text in RadRibbonBar, which can be localized. Please refer to the following help article, which describes how to achieve this.

    Hi Marco,

    To translate texts of controls, which you are setting, you can use the Language functionality of the form or you can manually change the text according to the desired language. However, for predefined texts set internally by our controls you should use our localization mechanism, as I have suggested in my previous post.

    Attached you can find a sample application, where I have set Default, German (Germany) and French (France) translations of standard button, RadButton and RadMenuItem.

    I hope that you find this information helpful.
     
    All the best,
