# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:27 david I18n::setLocale('es_ES'); echo __('hola'); // prints "hola" I18n::setLocale('en_GB'); echo __('hola'); // prints "hello" The problem, because I am trying to translate a translation: I18n::setLocale('es_ES'); echo __('hello'); // prints "hello"
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:24 dereuromark you could switch the translation language at runtime for each, and then reset. but it might be easier to just hardcode this one then.
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:23 david when I "paint" the link to change to spanish version, I can't obtain the spanish string because I am trying to translate __d('urls', '/english-slug');
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:22 david the problem is when I am in english (mydomain.com/en)
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:22 david no, that works fine
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:21 kevin.pfeifer but when changing to english, you want to load the text from the `en/default.po` and it doesn't`
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:21 david in spanish there is no problem
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:21 david yes, that is
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:20 kevin.pfeifer so your spanish text is all good and if your current active language is spanish then everything is fine, right?
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:18 david so, if translation doesn't exists, I get the spanish string
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:18 david I only have "/en" translations
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:17 david my default lang is "es", so "/es" doesn't exists
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:17 kevin.pfeifer so do you have ```/src /Locale /en default.po /es default.po```
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:14 david 3
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:14 kevin.pfeifer first of all, are you on cakephp 4 or 3?
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:14 david it is correct
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:13 kevin.pfeifer so you are outputting your text via `__('English')` but it is being translated because your current language not englisch
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:12 kevin.pfeifer i guess i know what the problem is
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:12 david Iterating the translations is not a problem, but when I am in a translation, I can't figure how to get the default language string
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:11 david yes, it should be different
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:10 kevin.pfeifer by "each language" i mean each "currently active language"
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:07 kevin.pfeifer and the text shown in your language dropdown should be different for each language, right?
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:05 david my current url es mydomain.com/en/categories and I want to change to to mydomain.com/es/categorias
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:04 david for example
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:03 kevin.pfeifer what do you mean by the current section?
# Jun 22nd 2021, 12:00 david I want to change the language, but keep in the current section. So I need to know the url segment of the current url
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:58 david I am trying to do a dropdown menu for changing the language of the current url
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:56 kevin.pfeifer besides the fact, that multiple translation "keys" can have the same translation, so you could run into the problem, that your given "translated text" appears multiple times in your .po file
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:54 kevin.pfeifer maybe you try to fix a problem which can be done easier otherwise
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:53 kevin.pfeifer but what are you trying to accomplish with that?
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:52 kevin.pfeifer and search through that manually if you really really want to
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:52 kevin.pfeifer you can ge tthe whole translation package via ``` $translator = I18n::getTranslator(); $package = $translator->getPackage();```
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:52 erwane the `__` function call ` ```I18n::getTranslator()->translate($singular, $args);``` You can set you own translator, who search in ALL pot files for string and return original.
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:50 erwane but it's very weird request ;)
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:50 erwane Maybe you can write you own translator
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:44 david If I set a locale in runtime via I18n::setLocale(), I can get the translation of a string. Is there any way to do in the inverse way? Given a translation, get the original string.
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:42 david morning :)
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:39 kevin.pfeifer But I guess all these structures have their meaning and reason, even if we sometimes don't get it instantly :)
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:39 kevin.pfeifer to be honest i too had to fiddle with these things quite some time till i got it working :)
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:38 neon1024 Success! Thanks again for the tips @kevin.pfeifer appreciate the help
# Jun 22nd 2021, 11:35 neon1024 The fact that CookieCollection is immutable caught me out
