Dear Telerik team.
Would it be possible for you to localize the five messages of the color picker widget?
It is pretty annoying to handle several languages by setting the color picker message option on every usage.
Or tell us what changes in the messages file are needed to have only one place to modify.

We are aware that there are missing localization for certain messages among the widgets. Could you please specify what is incorrectly localized so that we could review it on our side? However, you could create a custom localization file that is to be included in the page with all changes per the colorpicker there. Have a look at the following localization articles where it is described how to create such file and its configuration: https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/localization/overview.
None of the four messages seem to be translated into German. Taken from kendo.colorpicker.js.
Adding the code below to the kend.messages.de-DE.js did the trick. Could you add the translations to the next release?
I am glad that you have updated the localization files to contain the messages for ColorPicker.
All translations are available in our Kendo UI Core repository: https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/tree/master/src/messages. If you find more missing messages feel free to fork our repository, apply the changes in the respective files and submit a pull request: https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md#3-submit-a-pull-request. We will include the provided translations for the next Kendo UI release.
Thanks for pointing me to the github repo. According to your contribution policy I need to create tests. Well, looking at your tests I can't see any tests for the localizations. So what do you expect me to test?
There is no need for tests for the localization messages. After submitting a pull request we will review it and reach out to you if changes/tests are required or we will handle it by ourselves. Here is the Contribution section for localization in our documentation: https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/framework/localization/overview#contribution.
I have updated your Telerik points for your contribution.
