You have a possibility to present the interface of the RichText editor in any language you wish. You just need to translate the corresponding strings for labels and tooltips and apply a ready locale to the component.

Localized RichText

Default locale#

The default English locale looks like this:

var en = {    apply: "Apply",    undo: "Undo",    redo: "Redo",    selectFontFamily: "Font",    selectFontSize: "Font size",    selectFormat: "Style",    selectTextColor: "Text color",    selectTextBackground: "Background color",    markBold: "Bold",    markItalic: "Italic",    markStrike: "Strike",    markUnderline: "Underline",    alignLeft: "Align left",    alignCenter: "Align center",    alignRight: "Align right",    addLink: "Add link",    clearFormat: "Clear formatting",    fullscreen: "Fullscreen",    removeLink: "Remove link",    edit: "Edit",    h1: "Heading 1",    h2: "Heading 2",    h3: "Heading 3",    h4: "Heading 4",    h5: "Heading 5",    h6: "Heading 6",    p: "Normal text",    blockquote: "Block quote",    stats: "Statistics",    chars: "chars",    charsExlSpace: "charsExlSpace",    words: "words",    text: "Text",    link: "Link"}; 

Custom locale#

To use a different locale, your steps should be:

  • provide translation for all text labels in RichText, e.g. take a look at the German locale:
var de = {    apply: "Anwenden",    undo: "RĂŒckgĂ€ngig machen",    redo: "Wiederholen",    selectFontFamily: "Schriftfamilie",    selectFontSize: "SchriftgrĂ¶ĂŸe",    selectFormat: "Textstil",    selectTextColor: "Textfarbe",    selectTextBackground: "Texthintergrund",    markBold: "Fett",    markItalic: "Kursiv",    markStrike: "Durchgestrichen",    markUnderline: "Unterstrichen",    alignLeft: "Links ausrichten",    alignCenter: "Mittens ausrichten",    alignRight: "Rechts ausrichten",    addLink: "Einen Link hinzufĂŒgen",    clearFormat: "Format entfernen",    fullscreen: "Vollbildschirm",    unlink: "Einen Link löschen",    edit: "Redigieren",    h1: "Überschrift 1",    h2: "Überschrift 2",    h3: "Überschrift 3",    h4: "Überschrift 4",    h5: "Überschrift 5",    h6: "Überschrift 6",    p: "Normaler Text",    blockquote: "Blockzitat",    stats: "Statistiken",    chars: "Zeichen",      charsExlSpace: "Zeichen ohne Leerzeichen",     words: "Wörter",    text: "Text",         link: "VerknĂŒpfung"};
  • apply the new locale by calling the dhx.i18n.setLocale() method before initializing RichText:
dhx.i18n.setLocale("richtext", de);var richtext = new dhx.Richtext("richtext_container");
