Globalization & Localization

RangeNavigator supports Localization and Globalization to customize the labels based on a culture specific to a country. The culture defines specific information for the number formats, week and month names, date and time formats etc.


Localization is the process of customizing the user interface based on a culture specific to a particular country or region in order to display regional data. The culture is represented by a unique string, for example, ―en-US‖ for U.S. English and ―fr-FR‖ for French (common), this is achieved by creating a JavaScript file “” and setting the equivalent word as illustrated in the following code sample.

  • javascript
  • ej.datavisualization.RangeNavigator.locale["fr-FR"] = {
        intervals: {
            //string to display the intervals on RangeNavigator
            quarter: {longQuarters: "Trimestre", shortQuarters: "T"},
            week: { longWeeks: "Semaine", shortWeeks: "S" }

    Localization is the key feature that provides solutions globally with the help of localized control.
