Best practice multi language website
One best practice for implementing a multi-language website in PHP is to use a language detection library such as Text-Language-Detect. This library can detect the language of a given string and return the ISO 639-1 code of that language.
You can then use the ISO code to lookup the appropriate translation in a language translation file or database.
To display the translated content on your website, you can use a combination of PHP and HTML. For example, you can use PHP to output the translated content inside an HTML element like a
Here is an example of how you can use PHP to display translated content on a multi-language website:
<div> // Detect the language of the user's browser $lang = detectLanguage(); // Lookup the translation in a language translation file or database $translation = lookupTranslation($lang, 'welcome_message'); // Output the translated content echo $translation; </div>
It's also a good idea to use a language switcher on your website to allow users to easily switch between languages. This can be implemented as a dropdown menu or a list of links to the translated versions of your website.
