The globalization process combines the translation of component messages with adapting them to specific cultures.

For more information on how globalization practices are implemented in Kendo UI for Angular, refer to the overview article. For more information on the globalization aspects which are available for each component, refer to the article on globalization support.


The internationalization (i18n) process applies specific culture formats to a web application.

The Dialogs do not provide built-in translated messages or the option to implement and localize custom ones.

Right-to-Left Support

The following example demonstrates how to utilize the RTL support for the Dialogs.

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

    selector: 'my-app',
    template: `
      <div class="example-wrapper">
        <button kendoButton *ngIf="!opened" (click)="open()">Open dialog</button>
        <kendo-dialog title="Please confirm" *ngIf="opened" (close)="close('cancel')" [minWidth]="250" [width]="450">
            <p style="margin: 30px; text-align: center;">Are you sure you want to continue?</p>
                <button kendoButton (click)="close('no')">No</button>
                <button kendoButton (click)="close('yes')" primary="true">Yes</button>
export class AppComponent {
    public opened = true;

    public close(status) {
      console.log(`Dialog result: ${status}`);
      this.opened = false;

    public open() {
      this.opened = true;
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { RTL } from '@progress/kendo-angular-l10n';
import { ButtonsModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-buttons';
import { DialogModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-dialog';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

  bootstrap:    [AppComponent],
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports:      [BrowserModule, BrowserAnimationsModule, ButtonsModule, DialogModule],
  providers:    [{ provide: RTL, useValue: true }]
export class AppModule { }
import { enableProdMode } from '@angular/core';
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import { AppModule } from './app.module';


const platform = platformBrowserDynamic();
