Hello Peng,

Thank you for contacting us.

The Grid control does not support Japanese localization out of the box. Please review the following article how to change the control's localization.

Hi Peter,

We are finding it hard to get Kendo UI controls such as grids to work with Japanese language and culture messages.

The Kendo grid works fine we load the language and culture message files for French, German or English but failed we load similar files for Japanese. When we select Japanese
various commands labels for cancel, save,update ... are not translated to Japanese, instead they revert back to English (default language).

We found this old thread about similar issue to which you replied about 3 years ago, Could you please confirm if a fix for it had been applied in one the newer releases since that time?

Please we really need help on this issue and your input will highly appreciated. If you have not provided a formal fix, please advice on a workaround or temporal solution so we can get this problem sorted.

Regards

Hi Basile,

The localization files that we provide as part of UI for Kendo UI Suite, are based on community contributions. When a new feature is implemented in the product, this may result in new localization strings, which will no longer be translated to the respective language. We do our best to fill in the gaps, but if we are not certain about a specific string, we leave it in English.

This results in a constant improvement of the strings and adding new ones as well. I have checked and the commands for the grid are available in Japanese in the current latest version which is 2018.3.1017. 

I would recommend you to upgrade to the latest version not only because of the additional translations but to a handful of new features, enhancements, and bug fixes. 

Also, in case a resource file is missing some of the messages needed to support a culture, you can modify the resx file and add them to your current ASP.NET MVC project. The Add New Localizations section of the Localization article explains how to achieve this in detail:

https://docs.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/getting-started/localization#configuration-Add

Also, if you would like, you can create an entirely new localization article.

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/localization/overview#create-new-localization-file

Should you need assistance on the matter, feel free to contact me.


Kind regards,
Tsvetomir
