What will my code look like?

Before: Your react code would have looked something like:

Just simple content
Hello {name}, you have {count} unread message(s). Go to messages.

After: With the trans component just change it to:

Hello {{name}}, you have {{count}} unread message. Go to messages. ...

Head over to the interactive playground at codesandbox.

Why i18next?

  • Simplicity: no need to change your webpack configuration or add additional babel transpilers, just use create-react-app and go.
  • Production ready we know there are more needs for production than just doing i18n on the clientside, so we offer wider support on serverside too (nodejs, php, ruby, .net, ...). Learn once - translate everywhere.
  • Beyond i18n comes with locize bridging the gap between developement and translations - covering the whole translation process.
