RadCalendar provides built in internationalization support to build world-ready applications including:

* The Culture property can be set using the drop down list in the Properties Window or set in code. The screenshot below shows the Culture property set to "German(Germany)".

this.radDateTimePicker1.Culture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("de-DE");

Me.RadDateTimePicker1.Culture = New System.Globalization.CultureInfo("de-DE")

this.radDateTimePicker1.CustomFormat = "MMM - dd - yyyy";

Me.RadDateTimePicker1.Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Custom
Me.RadDateTimePicker1.CustomFormat = "MMM - dd - yyyy"
