Localization in Angular Maps component

17 Nov 20223 minutes to read

The localization library allows localizing the default text content of the Maps component. The Maps component has the static text of some features such as tooltip of zoom toolbar, and that can be changed to any other culture(Arabic, Deutsch, French, etc) by defining the locale value and translation object.

Locale key words Text to display
Zoom Zoom
ZoomIn Zoom In
ZoomOut Zoom Out
Reset Reset
Pan Pan

To load translation object in the application, use load function of L10n class. For more information about localization, refer here.

import { Component, ViewEncapsulation, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { Maps } from '@syncfusion/ej2-maps';
import { world_map } from 'world-map.ts';
import { L10n } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

    'ar-AR': {

            ZoomIn: 'تكبير',
            ZoomOut: 'تصغير',
            Zoom: 'زوم',
            Pan: 'مقلاة',
            Reset: 'إعادة تعيين'

    selector: 'app-container',
    `<ejs-maps id='container' [locale]="Locale" [zoomSettings]='zoom'>
    <e-layer [shapeData]="mapData" [tooltipSettings]='tooltipSettings'></e-layer>
