    I'm not sure what I'm missing, I've also looked through the documentation and somehow still don't manage to get this right. I'm trying to get a few Controls (like RadGridView or RadPager) to display the localized German version. Many how-to's I find deal with how to accomplish this for languages that are not yet officially supported and controls that have not yet been translated. With the version we use (2011.3) the localization is supposed to be included for a few languages.

    So, even if this might be a trivial thing, I still have not found out how I can actually make the application use the localized Controls on both
    - a German host system
    - an English host system

    Thanks for any hints.

    Hi Josef,

    There should be no problem to set German localization for your application. You need to set the CurrentCulture and CurrentUICulture:

    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("de");
    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new CultureInfo("de");
    Furthermore, you need to have the folders containing the resources for the German localization in the structure of where your binaries are placed and referenced.
