You can easily localize SpreadSheet, by defining all the necessary language settings.

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

It's possible to localize the following properties:

  • labels on the instruments panel
  • tooltips for instruments
  • names of the menu items

The labels of SpreadSheet buttons, menu items and tooltips are stored in the webix.i18n.spreadsheet object:

To apply a custom locale, you can follow one of the two ways:

1) hard-code the translated labels according to your locale in the webix.i18n.spreadsheet object;

2) provide translations to the desired Webix locale:

  • include translated labels and tooltips into the needed Webix locale as webix.i18n.locales[localeName].spreadsheet:
webix.i18n.locales["ru-RU"].spreadsheet = {
       "common": "Общий",
       "currency": "Валюта",
       "color": "Цвет текста",

The second way is more flexible.
