The built-in localization mechanism in Silverlight and WPF allows you to localize any string resource used by the RadDocking control. Once translated, you might use your resources in both Silverlight and WPF projects without changing anything.

To learn more about the ways to localize UI for WPF please read the common topic about Localization.

In RadDocking you can localize the context menu:

Rad Docking localization en

The next image shows the context menu localized in German:

Supported Languages

RadDocking can be translated in one of the following supported languages using the framework’s localization mechanism:

  • English
  • German
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Turkish

More information on how to achieve this you can find in the Localization Using Built-in Resources article.

Resource Keys

The resources of the control can be localized by using an unique identifier called resource key that is assigned to each localizable string. Below you may find a list of the Resources available and their default values:
