Install package

Add the package in your composer.json by executing the command.

composer require astrotomic/laravel-translatable


We copy the configuration file to our project.

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=translatable 

{% hint style="info" %} There isn't any restriction for the format of the locales. Feel free to use whatever suits you better, like "eng" instead of "en", or "el" instead of "gr". The important is to define your locales and stick to them. {% endhint %}


In this example, we want to translate the model Post. We will need an extra table post_translations:

{% code-tabs %} {% code-tabs-item title="create_posts_table.php" %}

Schema::create('posts', function(Blueprint $table) {

{% endcode-tabs-item %} {% endcode-tabs %}

{% code-tabs %} {% code-tabs-item title="create_post_translations_table" %}

Schema::create('post_translations', function(Blueprint $table) {

    $table->unique(['post_id', 'locale']);

{% endcode-tabs-item %} {% endcode-tabs %}


The translatable model Post should use the trait Astrotomic\Translatable\Translatable. The default convention for the translation model is PostTranslation. The array $translatedAttributes contains the names of the fields being translated in the PostTranslation model.

{% code-tabs %} {% code-tabs-item title="Post.php" %}

use Astrotomic\Translatable\Contracts\Translatable as TranslatableContract;
use Astrotomic\Translatable\Translatable;

class Post extends Model implements TranslatableContract
    use Translatable;
    public $translatedAttributes = ['title', 'content'];
    protected $fillable = ['author'];

{% endcode-tabs-item %} {% endcode-tabs %}

{% code-tabs %} {% code-tabs-item title="PostTranslation.php" %}

class PostTranslation extends Model
    public $timestamps = false;
    protected $fillable = ['title', 'content'];

{% endcode-tabs-item %} {% endcode-tabs %}

You can’t perform that action at this time.
