Translate client package integration for Objective PHP applications


This package provide Translate Client integration for Objective PHP applications.


Translate Package needs PHP 7.0 or up to run correctly.

You will have to integrate it to your Objective PHP project with composer require fei/translate-package.


As shown below, the Translate Package must be plugged in the application initialization method.

The Translate Package create a Translate Client service that will be consumed by the application's middlewares.


use ObjectivePHP\Application\AbstractApplication;
use Fei\Service\Translate\Package\TranslatePackage;

class Application extends AbstractApplication
    public function init()
        // Define some application steps
        $this->addSteps('bootstrap', 'init', 'auth', 'route', 'rendering');

        // Initializations...

        // Plugging the Translate Package in the bootstrap step

        // Another initializations...

Application configuration

Create a file in your configuration directory and put your Translate configuration as below:


use Fei\Service\Translate\Package\Config\TranslateParam;
use Fei\ApiClient\Transport\BasicTransport;

return [
    new TranslateParam('base_url', 'http://translate.api/'), // Translate API URL and port
    new TranslateParam('transport', new BasicTransport()), // Transport type
    new TranslateParam('translate_directory', '/app/translate/'), // Directory to store the translations
    new TranslateParam('translate_config', [
        'lock_file'         => '/app/translate/.translations.lock',
        'data_path'         => '/app/translate/data',
        'translations_path' => '/app/translate/translations',
        'localTranslationsFile' => dirname(__DIR__) . '/localTranslations.php',
        'skipSubscription' => false,
        'servers'           => [
            'http://translate.api/' => [
                'namespaces' => ['/mynamespace'],
                'host' => 'other-host'
        'url' => 'http://translate.domain.dev/handleRequest.php'
    ]),// Translate client config (Cf. Translate Client documentation)
    new TranslateParam('translate_namespace', '/mynamespace'), // Namespace defined in translate_config where to search the translations
    new TranslateParam('translate_lang', 'en_GB') // Language defined in which we want the translations

In the previous example you need to set this configuration:

  • base_url : represent the URL where the API can be contacted in order to send the translations
  • transport : represent the translations transport type
  • translate_directory : represent the path to the directory to store the translations
  • translate_config : represent the translate client configuration (Cf. translate-client documentation)
  • translate_namespace : represent the default namespace where to search the translations
  • translate_lang : represent the default language in which we want the translations

Note that if you want your application to use local translations and not subscribe to a Translate server you can configure your application like this:


use Fei\Service\Translate\Package\Config\TranslateParam;

return [
    new TranslateParam('translate_config', [
        'localTranslationsFile' => dirname(__DIR__) . '/localTranslations.php',
        'skipSubscription' => true,
