Sneak Peek Internationalization & More in Telerik Reporting R1 2018_870x220

We have lots of great features coming to Telerik Reporting in our next release. Read on to get an early preview.

For R1 2018 we are busy implementing a pack of new features that you have requested on our feedback portal. In the next release, we will include the latest accessibility standards for our desktop report viewers, integrated DataDirect ODBC Drivers with Engine Data Retrieval, and enable the Standalone Report Designer for localization.

In this blog post, I want to focus on what to expect regarding that last new feature.

Standalone Report Designer Internationalization

Application internationalization involves improving the experience, and decreasing the learning curve, for all non-native English speakers. In this release, we are working on providing resource files to enable our customers to localize the report designer according to their requirements.

The string resources will include keys for all UI areas. This includes all backstage items, ribbon items, wizards, properties descriptions, enum values and even property names. The localization mechanism is as simple as providing the resource files in the Standalone Report Designer directory. After a restart, the resource files are loaded and the localized strings are used in the designer UI. Which resources are loaded depends on the OS language or on the explicit preference set in the designer settings.

Next Release Coming Soon

The release is scheduled to arrive in less than a month in January. Hope you guys are as excited as we are with the news, and we can’t wait for you to try it out.
