Topic: internationalisation of DataTables

Doc free asked 5 years ago

Hello. I'm using the "DataTable checkbox example" you give in your datatable documentation. (Tables / Datatables / DataTable checkbox example).

I want to be able to translate in French some descriptions of the datatable, such as : "Show entries" "Search" "Showing 1 to 10 of 16 entries" Pagination : "Previous" and "Next"

Please give me a clear and detailed answer : what is the js code I must add in my js file to make this translation ? If the answer is using a JSON file, please tell me where to get it.

The question was already asked here : But the answers were not very clear. I'd like a piece of working code to copy and paste in my js file "as is".

Thanks in advance.
