How can I change the language of Magento's frontend calendar? Its a DHTML Calendar so that I can configure it in many ways. But I cant find out any multi-language options. Is there any way?

  • The core Magento JS calendar is multilingual by default . Isn't it working for you? Commented Jun 24, 2013 at 13:23
  • Can you notify how could I set an another language in default magento calendar?

The most of calendar translations are located in Mage_Page.csv file of your locale. However some variable stuff like months and weekdays are generated dynamically by Zend_Locale_Data class and can not be easily overwritten.

See Mage_Core_Block_Html_Calendar::_toHtml() for more info.

The quick solution would be to copy your /lib/Zend/Locale/Data/[your-locale].xml to app/code/local/Zend/Locale/Data/[your-locale].xml and modify it there but still not a very clean solution.
