PHP Languages

PHP Languages is a tiny package to help convert between languages names (such as English, French, German) and various ISO language codes (such as en, fr, de).

Installation

To install PHP Languages, just run the following Composer command.

composer require divineomega/php-languages

Usage

First, you need to get a Language object. You can get object by language name or ISO code. You can also find all languages that belong to a particular family.

use \DivineOmega\Languages\Language;

$language = Language::getByName('German');
$language = Language::getByNativeName('Deutsch');
$language = Language::getByIso639_1('de');
$language = Language::getByIso639_2_t('deu');
$language = Language::getByIso639_2_b('ger');
$language = Language::getByIso639_3('deu');
$languages = Language::getByFamily('Indo-European');

Once you have your Language object, you can access its various public properties to yield information about the language.

echo $language->family;         // German
echo $language->name;           // Deutsch
echo $language->nativeName;     // de
echo $language->iso639_1;       // deu
echo $language->iso639_2_t;     // ger
echo $language->iso639_2_b;     // deu
echo $language->iso639_3;       // Indo-European
