Telerik UI for Windows 8 HTML

RadSlider supports automatic localization of its strings, using resource files. The setup is simple and this article describes the steps needed to provide localization for this control.

Localizing RadSlider

Follow these steps to localize RadSlider/RadRangeSlider:

  1. At the root level of you application, create a strings folder. It will host the localization resources.

  2. Create a separate folder for each language that you want to support and name it after the corresponding locale, e.g. fr-FR.

  3. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Telerik\UI for Windows 8 HTML QX 201X\strings\en and copy the radslider.resjson file. Paste it in each language's folder.

    The correct folder structure should look like this:

  4. Translate the provided messages to the corresponding language and save the file.

The control will use the current culture of the application, which would be either the user default culture (if supported), the default culture provided in package.appxmanifest, or the one that you have provided by overwriting the primary language of the application. For more information on the application's way of handling cultures, click to read the MSDN resource, "How to manage language and region", linked at the end of this article.
