Hi,

We are considering using the Telerik control suite for our project but one issue which is of extreme importance to us is Localization.

We understand that your Winforms controls supoprt Right To Left languages and we were wondering if the same were true for your WPF and Silverlight controls.
 
We understand that this might be a naive question as we have not really looked into Localization for XAML based applications so we don't really know how it is done.

For our current product we already have customers in the Middle East however they are geting by on the English version of the application as the technology used is not localizable.  Our new product will be written using C# and probably Winforms but we have not completely decided which way to go between WPF and  Windforms yet.
 
The main reason for asking this question is that you explicitly state that your Windforms Controls support Right to Left languages but we could not find any similar statement for the WPF controls. Just wanting to put our minds at rest that we will not run into problems later on in our project.

Regards
Jim

Hi James,

Thank you for the interest in RadControls for WPF.

WPF supports RTL natively. With our last release (2009 Q1 SP1) we have introduced the Localization Manager both for WPF and Silverlight. You can find more about it on the blogs:

Silverlight Team Blog - Localization for RadControls for Silverlight and WPF

We haven't finished the controls' RTL support, though. We can probably complete it in our Q3 release later this year.

Kind regards,
Ivan

Thanks for providing localization links.

We are in the process to evaluate your 2D-Chart library and decide if we will use this library in our project.
Can we assume that we do not have problme to localizate axis titles and line legends on-the-fly by using your localization manger?
thx!

Hi Jane,

Unfortunately the current version of the chart control does not support built-in localization via the localization manager. We will not be able to include this functionality for the service pack release that is scheduled for this week, but we will do our best to do so for the next official release of the control.


Best wishes,

Hi,

I'm considering to buy the WPF suite but I absolutely need the grid to support RTL.
Can you confirm the GridView component is satisfying this requirement ?

Thank you in advance.
