Globalization

Globalization helps you adapt your app or website to multiple cultures. It includes options for message translation and RTL support, and services for defining the culture, its number, date, and time formats, and more.

Right-to-Left Rendering

The Telerik and Kendo UI frameworks regard the right-to-left (RTL) support as part of the broader localization and globalization concepts. The localization approaches for RTL content rendering and message translation, together with the internationalization services, deliver the full-blown globalization feature of the UI components.

The default language input for web users can be left-to-right or right-to-left. RTL support represents the ability of a library, website, or application to handle and respond to users who communicate through right-to-left languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese, and others.

The Telerik and Kendo UI components support both input modes enabling you, in this way, to properly render their content across various culture locales and make your project truly global. All Telerik and Kendo UI components come with built-in RTL support and offer right-to-left rendering.
