All Components

Globalization

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.

Internationalization

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

Messages

The DropDowns 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 DropDowns.

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

@Component({
  selector: 'my-app',
  template: `
    <div class="example-wrapper" style="text-align: right; min-height: 400px;">
      <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 example-col">
        <p>AutoComplete</p>
        <kendo-autocomplete [data]="listItems" [placeholder]="'Your favorite sport'">
        </kendo-autocomplete>
      </div>

      <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 example-col">
        <p>ComboBox</p>
        <kendo-combobox [data]="listItems" [value]="'Basketball'">
        </kendo-combobox>
      </div>

      <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 example-col">
        <p>DropDownList</p>
        <kendo-dropdownlist [data]="listItems" [value]="'Basketball'">
        </kendo-dropdownlist>
      </div>

      <div class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6 example-col">
        <p>MultiSelect</p>
        <kendo-multiselect [data]="listItems" [value]="value" [placeholder]="'Your favorite sports'"></kendo-multiselect>
      </div>
    </div>
  `
})
export class AppComponent {
    public listItems: Array<string> = [
        'Baseball', 'Basketball', 'Cricket', 'Field Hockey',
        'Football', 'Table Tennis', 'Tennis', 'Volleyball'
    ];

    public value = ['Basketball', 'Cricket'];
}

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { DropDownsModule } from '@progress/kendo-angular-dropdowns';
import { RTL } from '@progress/kendo-angular-l10n';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    BrowserAnimationsModule,
    DropDownsModule
  ],
  declarations: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  bootstrap: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  providers: [
    { provide: RTL, useValue: true }
  ]
})
export class AppModule { }

import { AppModule } from './app.module';
import { platformBrowserDynamic } from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';

const platform = platformBrowserDynamic();
platform.bootstrapModule(AppModule);
