    We are currently testing winform components and plan to buy them for our applications, however one of the key feature we're looking for is the ability to be fully translated in any language.

    We already find out the way to translate some of the strings, but some others remain in english (for example "Show Below the Ribbon" or "Minimize the Ribbon" in the radRibbonBar component). Can you guarantee us that every single string is translatable by accessing the text property of the component in code mode?

    Hello Jean,

    Thank you for the question.

    The vast majority of our controls are localized. If, however you come across cases where this is not the case, please let us know, and we will assist you.

    We are continuing our work on localizing the full component suite, especially with more complex controls such as the RadGridView. In Q3 we have added the capability to localize the ContextMenu of RadGridView. There will be a separate example for this feature in the Q1 2008 Examples application.

    As far as RadRibbonBar is concerned, "Show Below the Ribbon" and "Minimize the Ribbon" are indeed localizable. Please refer to the following code snippet:

    radRibbonBar1.LocalizationSettings.ShowQuickAccessMenuBelowItemText = "Your text here";  
    radRibbonBar1.LocalizationSettings.MinimizeRibbonItemText = "Your text here"

    Also, you can localize the "Options" and "Exit" buttons of the RadRibbonBar main menu.

    I will be grateful if you share with me which string you would like to localize. This will help me to assist you further.

    Best wishes,
    the Telerik team
