Hello,

The RadEditor's functionality about the fonts is to priovide ability to setup a collection of actual font names. They cannot be translated because they are native values defined by CSS or JavaScript.

Translating such matters is not a correct matter for an XHTML editor. For example the Courier New is a value that will be set through CSS or JavaScript and changing it to another one will break this functionality as it will be set to the translated text, but not to the value.

What I can suggest is implemented a custom dropdown that shows the translated text but triggers the native functionality with the proper values.

Hello,

The following example code demonstrates how such custom dropdown can be created.
<telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1" OnClientCommandExecuting="OnClientCommandExecuting">
    <Tools>
        <telerik:EditorToolGroup>
            <telerik:EditorDropDown Name="CustomFontNames" Text="Font Names" ItemsPerRow="1" PopupWidth="200px" PopupHeight="117px">
                <telerik:EditorDropDownItem Name="Desired Name for <span style='font-family: Tahoma;'>Arial</span>" Value="Arial" />
                <telerik:EditorDropDownItem Name="Desired Name for <span style='font-family: Courier New;'>Courier New</span>" Value="Courier New" />
                <telerik:EditorDropDownItem Name="Desired Name for <span style='font-family: Tahoma;'>Tahoma</span>" Value="Tahoma" />
            </telerik:EditorDropDown>
            <telerik:EditorTool Name="FontName" />
        </telerik:EditorToolGroup>
    </Tools>
</telerik:RadEditor>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
    function OnClientCommandExecuting(editor, args) {
        var name = args.get_commandName(); //The command name
        var val = args.get_value(); //The tool that initiated the command
        var argObject;
 
        if (name == "CustomFontNames") {
            argObject = new Telerik.Web.UI.EditorCommandEventArgs();
 
            argObject.set_value(val);
            editor.fire("FontName", argObject);
 
            //Cancel the further execution of the command
            args.set_cancel(true);
        }
    }
</script>

Further logic should be build as per to the application requirements.
