The Laravel Lang package has had extreme changes incompatibles with this package. Use Laravel-lang/publisher instead.

This package helps us to quickly install the language files in a preferably fresh Laravel application.


Use the composer to install the package.

composer require luisprmat/laravel-lang-installer --dev


Add new language

After install a new laravel application with Laravel >= 5.5 the package autodiscover system will register the new command lang:add and you can call with

php artisan lang:add <locale>

where <locale> refers to the short name of any of the supported languages


  • Add lang action overwrites the language files so that you already had custom translations you could lose them.
  • When adding a language this package first consults the composer.json file to copy only the translations of the supported packages that are installed (Laravel Breeze, Laravel Cashier, Laravel Fortify and Laravel Jetstream are supported) resources/lang/<locale>.json. So it is good that you first install the supported packages that you will use and then run the command php artisan lang:add <locale>
  • If this command does not receive arguments, the Spanish language [es] will be installed by default.

This command can take a unique argument (or none) that will be the short name of the language according to ISO 15897.

This command also modifies the key locale in the config/app.php file to set the default language as passed through the parameter.

This command can also receive the following options:

  • -I or --inline : Install validation.php with generic attributes, i. e no name for attribute (The placeholder :attribute is replaced by a generic name as This field, etc)
  • -D or --no-default : This option prevents the config/app.php file from being modified. Therefore, the default language that appears in config/app will remain without changes.


  • Install Spanish as default language.
php artisan lang:add


php artisan lang:add es
  • Install French as default language.
php artisan lang:add fr
  • Install Brazilian Portuguese without changes in config/app.php.
php artisan lang:add pt_BR --no-default
  • Install Aramaic language with validation.php without attributes.
php artisan lang:add ar --inline

Pull requests are welcome. For major changes, please open an issue first to discuss what you would like to change.

This package does not modify the translations, only copies them from laravel-lang/lang. So if you want to suggest changes in the translations you can make a PR to the laravel-lang/lang package




  • Allow merge translations instead of overwrite them.
  • Add Command lang:update to update translations and detect new installed packages to update their translations.
