Translates formatted date strings to the locale set with i18n::set_locale() if there is a matching language file.
LocalDate translates formatted date strings if there is a matching language file.
- SilverStripe 3.1 (this module will probably not be updated to SilverStripe 4)
- Compatible with Translatable
- Drop the module into your SilverStripe project and run /dev/build
- Set the correct locale in your project
You may also set the language manually using
LocalDateHelper::setLocale('xx_XX'); at any time.
The module will extend and override SS_Datetime and Date. Existing dates will be automatically translated as long as a valid language file exists as long as they are of SS_Datetime or Date type.
The locale for the translated date is based on (in order):
- Any valid locale set with the
- The current locale for
Translatableif the module is installed
- The current i18n-setting
If the language file for your locale is missing you can easily create it yourself. Simply use one of the included language files as a template and save it to your
/mysite/lang folder. Better yet, fork this repo and add it to the lang-folder and send me a pull request. Sending me an email (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) with the translated file attached will also do the trick.
