    I've been trying to set the front end culture to other culture then EN (default) to get the Date and Currency displayed in FR-fr (French culture), dates must be understandable to French people.

    I already posted on this forum with no answer, so I submitted a support ticket.
    After several replies, the support person answered me that it is not possible to change the front end culture with the Small Business edition.

    I understand the limitation of this edition to only one language and I can't imagine that the culture has to be English.

    It would mean that this edition is only usable with English content, and would be inappropriate to other cultures.

    Please can you clarify this point since I badly need to display Dates, RadCalendar... with the right culture.

    Thank you for your support.

    Hi Antonie,

    The desired scenario works as expected in Sitefinity 5.0, and it should also work in 4.4. You may download a trial of both version and check how this works. You can add second language from the Administration -> Settings, set it as default, and then remove the English. Even if we allow adding of more languages for the public side, you can still create/edit pages in the default culture only. The upgrade to 4.4 and 5.0 is fairly easy, so I hope that this is the solution.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
