Localizing Report Manager

By default, all labels in Report Manager are defined in English, but you can provide custom translations for:

  • actions (edit, create a copy, delete, etc.);
  • labels of the buttons;
  • confirmation messages;
  • labels of the dropdown options (Sum, Count, Average, etc.)

The Report Manager widget package includes only en-US locale. Check our Locales repository for the language you need or create your own locale. Feel free to contribute your successful translation.

Specifying Custom Locale

To change the default locale, you need to perform the following steps:

1. Set custom translations by creating the needed locale (below it is "ru") within the reports.locales object:

// Russian translations
reports.locales.ru = {
    "Add column": "Добавить колонку",
    "All reports": "Все отчеты",

2. Define the current locale for Report Manager. For these purposes, set the locale property of Report Manager in its constructor.
Note that you need to provide locales for inner Query as well:

// set custom translations for report manager
reports.locales.ru = ruLocale;
// set custom translations for inner query
query.locales.ru = ruQueryLocale;
// use custom scrolls, optional
  view: "reports",
  locale: {
    lang: "ru",
    webix: {
      // switch all webix widgets to the selected locale
      ru: "ru-RU"

How to Switch Locales at Runtime

You can change languages dynamically, e.g. by clicking related switch buttons in the toolbar.

1. First, set custom translations to the desired labels:

reports.locales.ru = {  
  // Russian locales
// other languages

2. Switch between languages using Report Manager "locale" service and its setLang method:

  view: "segmented",
  options: ["en", "ru"],
  width: 250,
  click: function() {
    const locale = $$("myReports").getService("locale");

How to Synchronize Report Manager and Webix Locale

The built-in labels of Webix components within the Report Manager, as well as date and number localization depend on the current Webix locale in use. To synchronize localizations of Report Manager and Webix, define webix parameter in the locale setting of the Report Manager constructor:

  locale: {
    lang: "en",
    webix: {
      // switch Webix the selected locale
      en: "en-US",
      ru: "ru-RU"
