I am going to forgo using Raymond's localization support for this version. To incorporate a few languages, Raymond uses the resourceBundle.cfc template that was originally coded by Paul Hastings. I believe that it supports two variants Dutch and German languages, along with English of course. Raymond labels his buttons and text messages in the different languages in 4 different .properties files, and uses the 'rb('message var') function to display the text and messages. I have decided not to incorporate the localization as I can't translate between English and the other languages, and this blog is also intended to be a living example how to use Kendo with ColdFusion. Using 'rb('pleaseWait') in my code will be confusing to the reader wanting to know how I am using ColdFusion and Kendo. It is much easier to read:

'$.when(kendo.ui.ExtWaitDialog.show({ title: "Please wait...", message: "Searching.", icon: "k-ext-information" }));'


'$.when(kendo.ui.ExtWaitDialog.show({ title: "
</cfoutput>", message: "
</cfoutput>", icon: "k-ext-information" }));'

for example. In one of the next versions, if someone wants to assist me in translating the English into the supported languages, I may revisit this decision and incorporate localization into the code.
