Hi,

im unable to change my RadGridView language to French. Following this page :

https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/wpf/common-information/common-localization

I wrote this in the App.xaml.cs : 

Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("fr");
Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo("fr");
Telerik.Windows.Controls.LocalizationManager.DefaultCulture = new CultureInfo("fr");

Then my RadGridView control have the "Language="fr" tag in the xaml.

The language of the filters are still in English.

I can see a dll called "Telerik.Windows.Controls.resources.dll in the documentation but can't find it anywhere.

Thank you

Hello Deuxieme,

In order to enable the localization resources and translate the Telerik controls to one of the supported languages, you should include also the associated satellite assemblies. For example, to use French you should have a folder named "fr" where your Telerik dlls are located. This folder should contain the Telerik.Windows.Controls.resources.dll. (see the attached picture).

Note that the you should not reference the Telerik.Windows.Controls.resources.dll in the project, but only place in the proper directory (the one where the Telerik dlls are located). 

The "fr" folder is available in the Telerik installation folder. In case you use NuGet packages to install the Telerik product and if you use the separate packages, you should install also the Telerik.Windows.Controls.for.Wpf.fr package.

I hope that helps.

Regards,
