I have a <grid> which contains multiple ZK objects like a<<static_text>>, 2 to 3 <textbox> objects, a <combobox> object, etc.. and in the UI, when I populate the values, it looks like I'm filling up the blanks. They are in order in such a way that it makes perfect sense only in English, but the order of the contents of the <grid> should vary based on the locale I select.

I know this can be achieved by manually writing code for another language and flexing based on the locale check done.

My question is - Is it possible to achieve this using a generic approach, instead of the approach that I've mentioned above? (Eg: like how we use properties file to define the message to be displayed with dynamic string values)
