A Translation bundle for loading messages from contentful

Step 1: Download the Bundle

Open a command console, enter your project directory and execute the following command to download the latest stable version of this bundle:

$ composer require bestit/contentful-translation-bundle

This command requires you to have Composer installed globally, as explained in the installation chapter of the Composer documentation.

Step 2: Enable the Bundle

Then, enable the bundle by adding it to the list of registered bundles in the app/AppKernel.php file of your project:

<?php
// app/AppKernel.php

// ...
class AppKernel extends Kernel
{
    public function registerBundles()
    {
        $bundles = array(
            // ...

            new BestIt\ContentfulTranslationBundle\BestItContentfulTranslationBundle(),
        );

        // ...
    }

    // ...
}

Step 3: Configure the Bundle

Simple configuration. Here a yaml example:

# config.yml

best_it_contentful_translation:

    # Contentful client service ... expect an Client from offical contentful sdk
    contentful_client_id: 'contentful.delivery.translation_client'                      # Required
    
    # Contentful mapping (all optional)
    contentful_mapping:
    
            # Contentful content type id (default: translation)
            content_type: 'translation'
            
            # Contentful field id for the message key (default: translation_key)
            translation_key: 'translation_key'
            
            # Contentful field id for the message value (default: translation_value)
            translation_value: 'translation_value'
            
            # Contentful field id for the message domain (default: translation_domain)
            translation_domain: 'translation_domain'

Step 4: Configure contentful

You need a translation content type in your contentful space. Just create one and set the field id in your config mapping (see above). The content type need three fields: key, value and domain. You can use a localized field as value.

Example configuration as json:

{
  "name": "Übersetzung",
  "description": "",
  "displayField": "translation_key",
  "fields": [
    {
      "id": "translation_key",
      "name": "Schlüssel",
      "type": "Symbol",
      "localized": false,
      "required": true,
      "validations": [
        {
          "unique": true
        }
      ],
      "disabled": false,
      "omitted": false
    },
    {
      "id": "translation_value",
      "name": "Text",
      "type": "Symbol",
      "localized": true,
      "required": false,
      "validations": [],
      "disabled": false,
      "omitted": false
    },
    {
      "id": "translation_domain",
      "name": "Domain",
      "type": "Symbol",
      "localized": false,
      "required": false,
      "validations": [],
      "disabled": false,
      "omitted": false
    }
  ],
  "sys": {
    //...
  }
}

Step 5: Use translations

The symfony translator expects a translation file. So you have to create a 'contentful' translation file - as you already know it through yml, xml or xliff: /Resources/translations/messages.de.contentful

The filename defines the domain and locale as usual in Symfony. The file content can remain empty - the translations are fetched via contentful.

Please note that Symfony cache the translations. So you have to clear the cache after changes in Contentful.
