When using WebServiceSettings in a RadScheduler, it seems like the Culture of the RadScheduler is overridden with one of the webservice.
In other words an explicit setting is overridden by a implicit, hidden (and possibly obscure) setting.
Many year old postings in this forum tells how to circumvent that madness, but none of them actually works.
The exact behavior is that a RadSchedulers Culture is respected until a response of the webservice containing appointments is received.
Then it is set to english, which is different from the culture I was setting.
Here is what I have tried
Setting the page declaration as
Is there a way to set Culture in RadScheduler and have it respected?

RadScheduler supports localization when using Web Service binding. However, some additional settings
are required. You already followed some of them.
The localization support for RadScheduler lets you completely translate the user interface, or simply adapt a few strings.In addition to the strings you can also customize the date and time format.
The primary means for localization in ASP.NET is to use resource files. Resource files are simple XML files that can be easily edited and transferred to other applications. You can use resource files to change the default (English) localization for RadScheduler that is stored in the Telerik.Web.UI assembly. You can find more information on that matter here.
I attached you a sample project where the scheduler is bound to a Web Service and with culture set to fr-FR. As you can see on the video, with the use of Global Resource Files the scheduler could be translated according to your needs.

The zip files´ solution did not load ("the projects file or web cannot be found" in all four projects).
Theese are our observations this far:
Before the scheduler gets its appointments, Culture is respected and swedish strings will show up.
When the scheduler has got its appointments, it switches the display to english. (That will affect week numbers and date formats).
If we remove the WebService tag (thereby not populating the scheduler), the strings will not be changed from swedish.
always outputs an object where name = "en-US", regardless of when it is called (Sys will be undefined before the document is ready however).
If we create a folder App_GlobalResources and put the file Messages.sv-SE.resx there, nothing will change (will the presence of that file change Sys.CultureInfo.CurrentCulture anyway?)
I have circumvented the problem by setting the .NET version of the project to 4.6.1, adding a form runat="server"-tag around the RadScriptManager and in the code behind running the following:
Thank you for the provided solution to the issue.
