PHPMaster.com:
Localizing PHP Applications "The Right Way", Part 3
November 14, 2011 @ 08:38:48

PHPMaster.com has posted its third part of its "Localizing PHP Applications 'The Right Way'" series. In this third part you'll learn more about locales and message domain switching.

In Part 2 you gained more insight into using the gettext library by learning the most important functions of the extension. In this part you'll learn how to best use a fallback locale, switch between locales, and override the currently selected message domain.

They show you how to set up the directory structure to handle a fallback locale, a choice to use when the system can't determine which to use. By using a default, you also avoid having the system translate from the default language to...the default language (like "English" to "English"). Included are also the code bits you'll need to switch between locales (just using a different domain) and using the dgettext function to specify a different domain than the selected one.
