    I would like to have the scheduler's buttons in another language, so I've tried to set up the culture using:

    <script src="@Url.Content("~/js/cultures/")" type="text/javascript"></script>

    and then in the document ready: kendo.culture("es-UY");

    This is working just for some of the texts, but It's not working for any of the buttons inside the scheduler, for example for the buttons, "Today", "Show full day" and so on.

    Is there an easy way to translate all this? Is there any workaround?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Daniel,

    If using the MVC wrappers then the localization is handled through a satellite assemblies which are generated when you create different resource files from the source project. You can create your own or modify the built in like explained here:

    If you have installed the ASP.NET MVC KendoUI extensions and the local demos then you should have a demo which demonstrates these localizations and how to change them through a DropDownList. The current resource files that generate localization messages for the scheduler are "en-US", "de-DE", "bg-BG", "it-IT"

    The demo which you can run is called globalization.cshtml and it can be found under the Scheduler offline demos for Asp.NET MVC.

    Kind Regards,

    my current project has to be shipped in several languages.

    Why you don't provide a neutral culture satellite assembly (as a fallback). E.g. "de".
    To show all your controls in german I have to use "de-DE":

    System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(SalesFunnel.Web.Helpers.CultureHelper.GetImplementedCulture("de-DE"));

    This code doesn't translate any of your controls:

    System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo(SalesFunnel.Web.Helpers.CultureHelper.GetImplementedCulture("de"));


    I'm using Kendo ASP.NET MVC.
