Localization of the HTML5 ReportViewer

The article elaborates on how to localize the messages displayed by the HTML5 Report Viewer. This feature is available since version R2 2018 SP1 (

  1. To localize the report viewer messages, create a new JavaScript file with the required string resources. You may use the resource file that gets deployed with the installation of the product in the subfolder Html5\ReportViewer\js\telerikReportViewer.stringResources- or the following code snippet:

    (() => {
    var sr = {
      //warning and error string resources
      controllerNotInitialized: "Controller is not initialized.",
      noReportInstance: "No report instance.",

    window.telerikReportViewer ||= {}; ||= sr;
  2. Specify the name of the file using the following convention: stringResources.[culture].js where [culture] is the name of the culture for the specified localization resource. For example, to provide a localization resource for the French-Belgian culture, the corresponding resource file could be named as follows:

  3. Translate the texts for the specified culture
  4. Load the JS file with the translated text before loading the report viewer:

    <script src="/Scripts/"></script>
    <script src="/api/reports/resources/js/telerikReportViewer"></script>

To modify the HTML5 Viewer's HTML template that contains the toolbar, Preview, Parameters, and DocumentMap areas, you will have to set the viewer's templateUrl. For more details on this, please check Providing Templates.
