Localizing component

On our website you can see localized version of Pivot Table in Demos – Localization, for example to Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, etc. The following article describes how Pivot Table can be localized.

Default language for all text elements in Pivot Table is English. The full process of component localization involves two steps:

  1. Create localization JSON file.
  2. Set localization for Pivot Table.

Step 1. Create your localization JSON file

Localization JSON file is the JSON file that has the list of all text messages and labels that are used in Pivot Table and can be localized.

If you plan to use one of localizations, that is used in our demos, you are free to download respective localization file from our site. Just click the file with language below or right click and save locally.

If you have downloaded one of the above files, you can jump to Step 2. Set localization for Pivot Table.

If you use different language, you can create your own localization file. We recommend using English localization file as a template. Download it, make a copy and replace all English texts with your own.

In the following example, we localize Calculated Values window in Pivot to French.

The original section of localization file looks as follows.

  "calculatedView": {
    "measureBox": "Drag Values To Formula",
    "measureName": "Value name",
    "formula": "Formula"
  }

Now we replace the respective terms with French.

  "calculatedView": {
    "measureBox": "Deplacez valeur a la formule",
    "measureName": "Nom de la valeur",
    "formula": "Formule"
  }

Once the Localization JSON file is loaded (see next step), your Pivot Table component should show the following changes in Calculated Values view
calculatingViewFrench

Your localization can be partial. For example, if you don’t need to localize Pivot Table completely, you can replace only those JSON objects that are necessary to translate. If certain label translations are not mentioned in the Localization JSON file, they will be set to default English values.

Step 2. Set localization for Pivot Table

Localization can be set as inline JSON or URL to localization JSON file. To preset localization for all reports you should set localization property in the global object. E.g. as below

URL to JSON

new Flexmonster({
    container: "pivotСontainer",
    global: {
        localization: "loc/fr.json"
    },
... });

JSON

new Flexmonster({
    container: "pivotСontainer",
    global: {
        localization: {
            "calculatedView": {
                "measureBox": "Deplacez valeur a la formule",
                "measureName": "Nom de la valeur",
                "formula": "Formule"
            }
        }
    },    
    ...
});

To specify different localization for particular report you should set localization property in the report object.

E.g. as below

URL to JSON

new Flexmonster({
    container: "pivotСontainer",
    report: {
        localization: "loc/fr.json"
    },
... });

JSON

new Flexmonster({
    container: "pivotСontainer",
    report: {
        localization: {
            "calculatedView": {
                "measureBox": "Deplacez valeur a la formule",
                "measureName": "Nom de la valeur",
                "formula": "Formule"
            }
        }
    },
    ...
});
