Use LocaleBundle instead.

Fetch locale of project through voters.


Using composer:

    "rezzza/locale-voter-bundle": "1.0.*",


composer update "rezzza/locale-voter-bundle"

Add on you AppKernel:

    $bundles = array(
        new Rezzza\LocaleVoterBundle\RezzzaLocaleVoterBundle(),

Define configuration on your config.yml:

    strategy: request        # only one strategy available, you can set null to manually decide of locale.
    default_locale: %locale% # set fallback locale.
    locales: ['en', 'fr']    # Define valid locales.
    voters:                  # A list of voter. Order define priority.
        - rezzza.locale_voter.request_parameter.voter
        - rezzza.locale_voter.accept_language.voter


With default configuration defined above, it'll look at _locale GET parameter in first time, if it does not match, it will look at accept language headers. locale voted (defined on voters on default) will be setted on request.

You can easily define new voters or define your own strategy.

Write a Voter

You have just to inherit from VoterInterface and add the service id of the voter on the configuration.

Example of voter:


namespace Acme\DoudaBundle\Locale\Voter;

use Rezzza\LocaleVoterBundle\Locale\Context\LocaleContextInterface;
use Rezzza\LocaleVoterBundle\Locale\Voter\AbstractVoter;

class MyVoter extends AbstractVoter implements VoterInterface
     * {@inheritdoc}
    public function vote(LocaleContextInterface $context)
        $request = $context->getRequest();

        // suggestLocale will check if locale is supported.
        if ($request->get('chuck') === 'testa' && $this->suggestLocale('NOPE')) {
            return 'NOPE';



  • Write tests.
