    Hello Kevin,

    Currently, the datepicker widget does not expose an easy way to modify the footer or the cell content of the popup calendar. Nevertheless you can achieve your goal by directly modifying the calendar footer:

    var dp = $("#datepicker").kendoDatePicker().data("kendoDatePicker");
      .append('<div class="k-footer"><a href="#" class="k-link k-nav-today">' + kendo.toString(new Date(), "dd MMMM yyyy") + "</a></div>")
    Note that the popup calendar is shared with all datepickers on the page, so by modifying the calendar rendering will affect all datepickers.

    The DatePicker can be globalized registering one of the JS culture files situated in js/cultures folder. Then you will need to set the current culture using this code snippet:
    kendo.culture("culture name");
    //this code sets French culture

    Check this jsFiddle demo, which shows how to accomplish these tasks.
