NamespacesConsumer (v9)

{% hint style="info" %} Was introduced in v8.0.0. Not available in older versions. {% endhint %}

The NamespacesConsumer is a so called render prop. The component passes the t function to child function and triggers loading the translation files defined. Further it asserts the component gets rerendered on language change or on changes to the translations themselves.

{% hint style="info" %} To learn more about using the t function have a look at i18next documentation:

Sample usage

import React from 'react';
import { NamespacesConsumer } from 'react-i18next';

function TranslatableView() {
  return (
    <NamespacesConsumer ns={[
        (t, { i18n, ready }) => (
            <p>{t('anotherNamespace:key.from.another.namespace', { /* options t options */ })}</p>

NamespacesConsumer props

options type (default) description
wait boolean (false)

assert all provided namespaces are loaded before rendering the component (can be set globally too).

Note that rendering will not be blocked again when dynamically updating the ns prop after initial mount.

In most cases you like to set this to true. If not handling not ready by evaluating ready.

nsMode string ('default') default: namespaces will be loaded an the first will be set as default

fallback: namespaces will be used as fallbacks used in order provided
bindI18n string ('languageChanged loaded') which events trigger a rerender, can be set to false or string of events
bindStore string ('added removed') which events on store trigger a rerender, can be set to false or string of events
omitBoundRerenders boolean (true) Does not trigger rerenders while state not ready - avoiding unneeded renders on init
i18n object (undefined) pass i18next via options (useful for next.js usage)
initialI18nStore object (undefined) pass in initial translations (useful for next.js usage)
initialLanguage string (undefined) pass in initial language (useful for next.js usage)
