Locale Customizations

Inji Web offers multi-lingual support. At present, 3 Indian and 3 international Languages are supported.

  1. English

  2. Arabic

  3. French

  4. Tamil

  5. Hindi

  6. Kannada

Steps to support a new language

  1. Under locales folder, localization of a particular language JSON file has to be added.

  2. Language JSON has to be imported in i18n.ts and load the resources to i18next as follows:

  • import ta from './locales/ta.json';

  • const resources = { en, fr, ar, hi, kn, ta };

  1. Ensure the language display mapping is done in the LanguagesSupported variable in i18n.ts

    export const LanguagesSupported: LanguageObject[] = [
        {label: "English", value: 'en'},
        {label: "தமிழ்", value: 'ta'},
        {label: "ಕನ್ನಡ", value: 'kn'},
        {label: "हिंदी", value: 'hi'},
        {label: "Français", value: 'fr'},
        {label: "عربي", value: 'ar'}
  2. To use with react, must include the key with the 't' function <Text>{t('editLabel')}</Text>

About libraries

Below specified libraries are used in the Inji Web react project to support localization:

  1. i18next: i18next is an internationalization framework. It provides the standard i18n features such as plurals, context, interpolation, and format. It provides a complete solution to localize products in the web.
