Hi Customer,   
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.   
We think that the reason it was displayed in French is because you had missed to refer the culture file (ej.culture.fr-FR.min.js) as a script reference in your project. If so, kindly refer it in your application.   
By defining required locale text values globally in script section, you can set “button text” to all DatePicker if more than one DatePicker control is present in the page. Please refer to the below code example. 
<script src='<%= Page.ResolveClientUrl("~/Scripts/ej/i18n/ej.culture.fr-FR.min.js")%>' type="text/javascript"></script> 
<ej:DatePicker runat="server" ID="datepick" Locale="fr-FR"></ej:DatePicker> 
ej.DatePicker.Locale["fr-FR"] = { //globally defined locale text          
            watermarkText: "Sélectionner une date", 
            buttonText: "Aujourd'hui", 
For more information about localization in DatePicker, refer to https://help.syncfusion.com/aspnet/datepicker/globalization

Thank you, 

it works fine now.

One more thing, on the same page i have a Treegrid. I set up Locale="fr-FR" but it stays in English. Does this JS file not works with Treegrid ?

Hi Nicolas, 
By using “locale” property we can apply localization to TreeGrid. To localize the headerText, we can provide the custom text in “headerText” columns property. 
You can find different localization texts from the below link  
Please find the code example below:  
    <script src="Scripts/scripts/ej.culture.fr-FR.min.js"></script>  
   //The ej.localetexts.fr-FR.js file carries the “fr-FR” locale text for all the EJ controls.  
    <script src="Scripts/scripts/ej.localetexts.fr-FR.js"></script>  
<ej:TreeGrid ID="TreeGridcontainer" runat="server"  
                <ej:TreeGridColumn HeaderText="Nom de la tâche" Field="Name" />  
Please find the locale texts for TreeGrid  
    ej.TreeGrid.Locale["fr-FR"] = {  
                toolboxTooltipTexts: {  
                    addTool: "Ajouter",  
                    editTool: "modifier",

                emptyRecord: "Aucun enregistrement à afficher",  
We have also prepared the sample based on this. Please find the sample from below location  
Disclaimer: We have removed bin and obj folder in the given sample for some security reasons, we must include Syncfusion.EJ and Syncfusion.EJ.Web dlls to render the TreeGrid control which is available in Essential Studio installed location. 
Please let us know if you require further assistance on this.
