    Is it possible to localize the RadEditor control on a multilingual site (en, fr) which uses variation labels for localization? If so, how would I go about it?

    Hello TerryM,

    In order to localize RadEditor for MOSS you need to do the following.
    1. Copy all the files from Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\wpresources\RadEditorSharePoint\\Resources\App_GlobalResources to the App_GlobalResources folder of your MOSS site. The default one is \Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\App_GlobalResources.

    2. Set the Language property in the respective ConfigFile.xml or ListConfigFile.xml, which are located in the /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/ folder.

    Review the following two articles:
    Using Global Resource Files
    Set Properties Via Config File

    I understand that you have multilingual site. So here are some suggestions of how you can apply the different settings.
    1. Review the following online help article: Different configuration files for different webs. If in each language your site has different UID, you will be able to create different ConfigFile{UID}.xml filers and you will be able to set the Language property for each site. (I do not know what is the implementation of your multilingual structure so I am not 100% sure that this will work in your environment).

    2. You can create custom control which will inherit from RadEditor for MOSS and you will set the Language property programmatically.

    3. I can provide you with the source code of RadEditor for MOSS and you will be able to create custom wsp solution, which will fit in your scenario.

    Best regards,

    Hi Stanimir,

    It seems that copying the files to the MOSS site's App_GlobalResources folder did the trick. The Sharepoint site variations take care of the rest.
