If i18next is your favorite i18n and l10n library for frontend development, this is the right place to see how you can localize Angular applications with i18next. On top of that, we’ll see how we can use PhraseApp library integrations to automate the process and control the translation data with greater visibility.
We’ve been dealing with Angular l10n and i18n for quite a while now. We’ve compiled a list of best libraries for Angular i18n and even described how to localize Angular apps with ngx-translate or by using a built-in i18n module. If you’re familiar with i18next though and don’t want to switch to any other framework – we can’t blame you – there is an option to integrate it to your Angular project with the help of a community-maintained plugin.
This article will guide through the Angular l10n process with i18next and show you how to:
- Create a new Angular project using the latest version
- Integrate the i18next module into the app
- Set a default locale and switch to another locale
- Handle translation files
- Use the PhraseApp command line interface (CLI) for syncing our translations with the cloud and improving our workflow
By the way, all the code shown in this tutorial is also hosted on GitHub. Let’s get started!
