To localize RadSyntaxEditor to display control text and messages in a specific language:

  • All required classes for localization are defined in Telerik.WinControls.UI.Localization namespace.

  • Start by creating a descendant of the RadSyntaxEditorLocalizationProvider class.

  • Override the GetLocalizedString(string id) method and provide a translation for the label and user messages. If a translation is not provided, the default value will be returned. This behavior is guaranteed by the call of the base GetLocalizedString method in the default clause of the switch statement in the example.

Localizing RadSyntaxEditor Strings

To apply the custom localization provider, instantiate and assign it to the current localization provider:

Assigning the Current Localization Provider

 RadSyntaxEditorLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = new EnglishRadSyntaxEditorLocalizationProvider();   

RadSyntaxEditorLocalizationProvider.CurrentProvider = New EnglishRadSyntaxEditorLocalizationProvider()

The code provided above illustrates the approach to be used to localize the RadSyntaxEditor and is not intended as a full translation.
