Hi Marquant,
Thank you for using Syncfusion products.
We analysed your query for localizing SfDataGrid into French instead English and find the details as follows:
Please refer the below UG link to know about how to integrate localization in your application:
UG Link:
By using culture information, you can localize SfDataGrid into French language like the following code snippet:
Code Snippet:

System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("fr");

I have already tried this method without success :(

Your sample works perfectly, but if I apply this in my application (more complex in terms of directories), the SFDataGrid is kept in English and I don't know why.

Do you have any other idea ?

After many tries this evening, I was unable to apply the localization to my application. The resources files Syncfusion.SfGrid.WPF.fr.resx seemes to be never taken into account.

Do you have any idea to unblock my situation :( ?

Hi Marquant,

Can you provide the below information,

1. Is the assembly name and default namespace of the project is same? Make sure both names are same.

2. Is the Resx file and the control resides is the same project or difference project? Make sure both are present in the same project.

Here my answer to your questions.

1 - Yes. The name is Piscarius2 for both
2 - Yes they are located in the same project

My analysis is that the resources file seemes to be ignored or not found by the Syncfusion control. Is there a way to check the resources files is known before to load the control by example ?

Thanks for your help.

If you want I can give you access to my source code, through my Assembla SVN repository. Maybe it can be useful to understand this complex project...

But I cannot provide this information in this forums. Is there a way to send you these information in private message ?
