    I'm currently working on a multilingual silverlight application so I'll need to translate some of the Telerik user control.

    Example #1: Change the "loading..." text from the RadBusyIndicator

    Example #2: Change the label and text from the Filtering Dialog of a RadGridView

    If possible, I would like to be able to change the displayed text dynamically in the code behind instead of creating a new style for each language (example #1) or a custom user component (Custom Filtering for example #2).

    Hi Simon,

    The initial "Loading data .... " text can be changed by using the BusyContent property of the RadBusyIndicator. As for changing the labels in the Filtering control in RadGridView, you may follow up this article demonstrating how to localize the predefined strings. You need to use the Keys of the strings and define the text you want to be displayed instead of the default one.
    Furthermore, you may take a look at our demo showing how to change language dynamically.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
