Starting with R2 2022, the Kendo UI team officially drops the support for AngularJS 1.x through Kendo UI for jQuery. The AngularJS related files and functionality are removed from the bundles and distribution in R3 SP1 2023. The last version that contains the files is R3 2023.


How can I dynamically change the language of the Kendo UI Grid in AngularJS applications?


The following example represents the AngularJS version of this demo.

The example loads Kendo UI 2023.3.1010 version.

  <script src=""></script>
  <script src=""></script>

  <div id="example" ng-app="KendoDemos">
    <div ng-controller="MyCtrl">
        <kendo-grid k-scope-field="grid" options="mainGridOptions" k-rebind="language"></kendo-grid>
        <kendo-dropdownlist k-scope-field="dropdownlist" k-options="dropDownListOptions"></kendo-dropdownlist>

    angular.module("KendoDemos", [ "kendo.directives" ])
        .controller("MyCtrl", function($scope) {
            $scope.language = "en-US";

            $scope.changeLanguage = function() {
              var value = this.value();
              kendo.ui.progress($scope.grid.wrapper, true);
              var baseUrl = '//';
              $.getScript(baseUrl + value + ".min.js", function () {
                kendo.ui.progress($scope.grid.wrapper, false);
                $scope.$apply(function () {
                  $scope.language = value;

            $scope.dropDownListOptions = {
              change: $scope.changeLanguage,
              dataTextField: "text",
              dataValueField: "value",
              dataSource: [

                {text: "bg-BG"},
                {text: "zh-CN"},
                {text: "ru-RU"}

            $scope.mainGridOptions = {
                dataSource: {
                    type: "odata",
                    transport: {
                        read: "//"
                    pageSize: 5,
                    serverPaging: true,
                    serverSorting: true
                sortable: true,
                pageable: true,
                filterable: true,
                dataBound: function() {
                columns: [{
                    field: "FirstName",
                    title: "First Name",
                    width: "120px"
                    field: "LastName",
                    title: "Last Name",
                    width: "120px"
                    field: "Country",
                    width: "120px"
