Change the locale of the grid validation

Hello there. I have the following requirement: enable italian localized validation messages on grid component. Following the guide here:


I've been able to enable validation for my grid, while adding or editing a record. Now I want to localize all the validation messages in italian. I thought that I would need to set the correct grid locale, so, following the guide here:


I added this to my grid:


and I also added the following reference in _Layout.cshtml:

<script src="@Url.Content("~/Scripts/globalize/cultures/globalize.culture.it-IT.min.js")"></script>

This correctly changed the localization (the currency unit is now € instead of $) but the validation messages are still in english. The only approach which has been successful so far was to manually edit the validation messages icluded in "jquery.validate.min.js", but I doubt that it's the best way to achieve my requirement. What's the best way to solve this issue? Thanks.

Hi Carlo,

Thanks for using the Syncfusion products.

We can provide the localization support for a validation message based in any language. We have to use localization script file in the Layout page for each language.


  <meta charset="utf-8" />

    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />

    <link rel='nofollow' href="/Content/ej.theme.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

    <link rel='nofollow' href="/Content/Site.css" rel="stylesheet" />

    <script src="/Scripts/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" ></script>

    <script src="/Scripts/jquery.easing-1.3.js"></script> 

    <script src="/Scripts/jquery.globalize.min.js" ></script>

    <script src="/Scripts/jsrender.min.js" ></script>

         // Validation script file

    <script src="~/Scripts/jquery.validate.min.js"></script>

    <script src="~/Scripts/jquery.validate.unobtrusive.min.js"></script>

    <script src="/Scripts/globalize.culture.de-DE.min.js"></script>

    <script src="/Scripts/globalize.culture.es-ES.min.js"></script>

    <script src="~/Scripts/globalize.culture.it-IT.min.js"></script 

         // Italian Locale script file

    <script src="~/Scripts/messages_it.js"></script>

    <script src="/Scripts/ej.web.all.min.js"></script>

    <script src="/Scripts/ej.unobtrusive.min.js"></script>


We can set validation rule by using ValidationRules property for specific columns.


      // Locale language


        .Columns(col =>

        {     . . . . . . .. 

            // Validation rules

            col.Field("ShipCity").HeaderText("Ship City").ValidationRules(v => v.AddRule("required", true).AddRule("minlength", 3)).Width(90).Add();

               . . . . . . . . .
