Localization is the process of translating an application’s user interface based on specific cultures.
Localizing Dashboard Designer
You can localize the
Syncfusion Dashboard Designer by placing the resource file
(.resx). This file is modified as per your preferred culture in the
Localization folder within the installed location of Dashboard Designer application.
To localize the Syncfusion Dashboard Designer using resource file, follow the below steps
- Create a copy of the default resource file (Resources.en-US.resx) of Syncfusion Dashboard Designer. This designer is available in the
Localizationfolder at the installed location of the Dashboard Designer application. Place the created file in the same location.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Syncfusion\Dashboard Designer\DashboardDesigner\Localization
Open the copied file using the Text Editor such as Notepad++. Each data row of the resource file contains a name, and value.
Edit the value corresponding to each name based on the specific culture.
Rename the file as
Resources.<culturename>.resx. Here, the culture name illustrates the codes of language and country. For example, you have to specify file name as Resources.fr-FR.resx for French culture.
Close any instance of Syncfusion Dashboard Designer application kept open, so as to get the above changes into effect.
To change the language, open the
Preferenceswindow by clicking on the
Preferences...menu item under the
The newly added language will be listed in languages list in the
Languagedrop down list and select the language from that list and click on Apply button.
This process requires closure of Syncfusion Dashboard Designer to get the selected language take into effect during next startup of the Dashboard Designer.
After restarting the application the application texts will be shown in the selected culture.
