Editing existing translations and adding translations

Editing existing translations

Sometimes the translations can be improved to make them better understandable.

  • To edit existing language translations – go to resources/lang/{language_iso_code}/
  • Here you will find files almost grouped based on the pages. Edit the string you want to change and save it.
  • If you make improvements to the language file, please do share it with us. We will update the codebase so that it is useful to others too. Email: [email protected]

Adding new translations

  • Create the language folder with the language code inside the lang folder(like the language code for Spanish is `es` )
    Follow the path (/resources/lang/es).
  • Inside the newly created folder add the file which you have translated.
    Follow the path(/resources/lang/es/messages.php) here `messages.php` is the file where you will keep all the new translations for that language(Spanish in this case).
  • Copy and paste value from `resources/lang/en/messages.php` file  to google translation (Ex: ‘form_name’ => ‘Form Name’ [[here `Form Name` is the value & `form_name` is key]]).
  • And now copy the translated value from there and paste into the array present in the  `/resources/lang/es/messages.php` file using the key => value pair.
  • ex: <?php
    return [
    ‘success’ => ‘Éxito’,
    <!– add key value pair of translation –>
  • NOTE: You can get the code for the languages from `/config/constants.php` file. Here the code is defined as keys inside the `langs` array.
  • ex:  'langs' => [
    'en' => ['full_name' => 'English', 'short_name' => 'English']
