What is Laralang?

Laralang is a laravel packages that allows you to translate your app or parts of your app from views using translations services like google or mymemory, and then store it on your DB to filter and manage easily from our admin panel.

Moreover, allows you to translate PHP files easily and then save lot of time to you.

Why use Laralang?

Personally I think the best way to translate your website is using the Laravel methods such as @lang() but sometimes it's impossible. Imagine you have a blog, and you need to translate it to different languages. With Laralang it's soo easy to do it, only place a little code like following example and laralang will translate it from your favourite translation service or well loading a stored translation on your database.

{{ Laralang::trans($post->content) }}
