translate

Can be used to translate hardcoded texts in your theme, using locale files. It expects you to put a .yml (YAML) file for each language of your site in the locales folder. So if your site supports Dutch and English, you should have the following files:

1 2 locales/nl.yml locales/en.yml

These files can then contain translations, given that you keep the same data structure. For example:

locales/nl.yml

1 2 3 4 5 6 footer: heading: "Welkom bij de footer" served_by_plate: "Deze website wordt geserveerd door Plate" contacts: phone: "Telefoon" email: "Email"

 

locales/en.yml

1 2 3 4 5 6 footer: heading: "Welcome to the footer" served_by_plate: "This site is served by Plate" contacts: phone: "Phone" email: "Email"

 

 

When these files are in place, you can use the translate filter as follows.

On the Dutch version of the site:

Input:

1 2 {{ "footer.heading" | translate }} {{ "footer.contacts.phone" | translate }}

Output:

1 2 Welkom bij de footer Telefoon

On the English version of the site:

Input:

1 2 {{ "footer.heading" | translate }} {{ "footer.contacts.phone" | translate }}

Output:

1 2 Welcome to the footer Phone
