  • Is it possible to translate a library in an app?
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/reactnative | 17 Feb 2021
    Translation isn't really a react native specific issue, the web/react also needs to be able to support this. You shouldn't need anything fancy to translate, but strings would need to be localized via https://github.com/zoontek/react-native-localize or https://github.com/globalizejs/globalize. With regards to translating the library, you can either use https://github.com/ds300/patch-package to localize all the strings for your own use or submit a PR to the library. I am also assuming that you have no flexibility on what text is being displayed when using the libraries' API (ex: headerTitle in react-navigation) because in that case it is related to translating your own app.

    The second format is the ICU Message Format. There are multiple JavaScript modules implementing the ICU message syntax. One of the most used is intl-messageformat by Format.js. It is used behind the scenes also in react-intl.

  • i18n and Next.js
    8 projects | reddit.com/r/nextjs | 27 May 2021
    I'm currently setting up i18n for a boilerplate that I am creating and deciding on which package to use. I've used react-intl in the past (when Next.js did not yet have internationalised routing) and it was a fine experience. However, since I now have the opportunity to reevaluate which package to use, I thought I might as well ask others for their opinion.
  • React internationalization with react-intl
    3 projects | dev.to | 21 Apr 2021
    The react-intl is a part of Format.JS, a set of JavaScript libraries for internationalization and formatting. It is a well-documented and maintained library. It works well in all major browsers. For older browsers, there are polyfills. Plenty of formatting options and support for the ICU Message syntax makes it very handy.
  • I wrote an tool to auto-internationalize any react app
    2 projects | reddit.com/r/javascript | 12 Apr 2021
    I had to build this for a project I was involved in. It uses the format.js API to do the internationalization. I was a bit aggressive in the algorithm so it's possible that there were some false positives but those are pretty easy to find once you have the translation file (which gets produced by the format js tooling). Using this tool, however, I was able to convert a good 80-90% of the app in my particular use case (a medium size react app). The remaining code was done manually (things like pluralization are not handled by the tool).
