Description of problem:
Hello, I would like to know if there is a way to translate string for "datatable type" in editor.
I don't see this entry in language configuration options for Editor.
https://editor.datatables.net/reference/option/i18n

As you can see on the screenshot, words are in english and I don't see in the documentation if there is a way to translate them.

Thanks in advanced for your help.

Best regards.

    That's a DataTables option - not Editor. See the DataTables options here (click the "DataTables - Internationalisation" button).

    language.searchPlaceholder and language.info will be of interest based on the arrows in your image. You can pass DataTables options to the DataTable created by the datatable field type using its config option.

    e.g.:

          {
            label: "Position:",
            name: "position",
            type: "datatable",
            config: {
              language: {
                search: 'Rechercher:'
              }
            }
          },
    

    Assuming you want to use the same translations for all tables on the page you might want to do:

    $.extend( DataTable.defaults.oLanguage, {
      search: 'Rechercher:',
      // ...
    } );

    Hi Allan,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I was able to change text with your instruction.

    So, if I understand well, I simply have to use the same initialization for "fields" of editor component ("config.language" for datatable type) than my main datatable (see below for the main datatable initialization).

    $("#mydatatable").DataTable({
        language: {
            "emptyTable": "Aucune donnée disponible dans le tableau",
            .....
            "decimal": ",",
            "search": "Rechercher:",
            .....
            "info": "Affichage de _START_ à _END_ sur _TOTAL_ entrées",
            "infoEmpty": "Affichage de 0 à 0 sur 0 entrées",
            "infoFiltered": "(filtrées depuis un total de _MAX_ entrées)",
            "lengthMenu": "Afficher _MENU_ entrées",
        },
        columnDefs: [
            ...
        ],
        ...
    });
    

    Otherwise, if I want to contribute to the French translation, do I have to fill fields in the web page https://datatables.net/plug-ins/i18n/

    Have a nice day.

    I simply have to use the same initialization for "fields" of editor component

    Correct. You could store the language object in a variable and then reuse that variable. Or better yet is to just set the defaults for the page.

    if I want to contribute to the French translation, do I have to fill fields in the web page

    Yes please! It is almost complete that translation - are any of them wrong?

    I have tried to complete the french translation from form but it does not seems to be saved.
    Otherwise, if I can have a complete json file I can complete it if you want.

    Oh - that's not good. Are you getting any error messages?

    It will go into a queue that I review (typically at the end of the week) before it gets published, but I don't see any from yourself in at at this time.

    Sorry, I haven't seen the comment on the line for French translation

    And I think you just have to keep the last commit I have done (I recognize the dates and I beleive all release are mine)

    Have a nice day and sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi again,

    I think there is a small bug with "Custom Search Builder" and translation.

    In datatables.js file we find this: notEndsWith for '!ends' tag

                // eslint-disable-next-line sort-keys
                '!ends': {
                    conditionName: function (dt, i18n) {
                        return dt.i18n('searchBuilder.conditions.string.notEndsWith', i18n.conditions.string.notEndsWith);
                    },
                    init: Criteria.initInput,
                    inputValue: Criteria.inputValueInput,
                    isInputValid: Criteria.isInputValidInput,
                    search: function (value, comparison) {
                        return !value.toLowerCase().endsWith(comparison[0].toLowerCase());
                    }
                },
    

    But in i18n file for here (https://datatables.net/plug-ins/i18n/), we can find conditions.string.notStarts

    The consequense is that this entry is not translated.

    Same problem with "notStartsWith" and '!starts'

    So, how is right.
    Translation tag are javascript code from datatable.js ?

    Thanks in advance for your help and have a nice day.

    Thank you for position that out. We had an error in our keys database for the translation strings. Corrected now.

    Regards,
    Allan
