The package provides message storage backend based on PHP arrays to be used with yiisoft/translator package.


  • PHP 8.0 or higher.


The package could be installed with Composer:

composer require yiisoft/translator-message-php

General usage

The package is meant to be used with yiisoft/translator:

use Yiisoft\Translator\CategorySource;
use Yiisoft\Translator\IntlMessageFormatter;
use Yiisoft\Translator\Message\Php\MessageSource;

$categorySource = new CategorySource(
    new MessageSource('/path/to/messages'),
    new IntlMessageFormatter(),

The examples below are about using it separately.

Create an instance of message source

/** @var string $path - full path to your translations */
$messageSource = new \Yiisoft\Translator\Message\Php\MessageSource($path);

Read a message without yiisoft/translator package

 * @var \Yiisoft\Translator\Message\Php\MessageSource $messageSource
 * @var ?string $translatedString
$id = 'messageIdentifier';
$category = 'messageCategory';
$language = 'de-DE';

$translatedString = $messageSource->getMessage($id, $category, $language);

Write an array of messages to storage

 * @var \Yiisoft\Translator\Message\Php\MessageSource $messageSource
$category = 'messageCategory';
$language = 'de-DE';
$data = [
    'test.id1' => [
        'message' => 'Nachricht 1', // translated string
        'comment' => 'Comment for message 1', // is optional parameter for save extra metadata
    'test.id2' => [
        'message' => 'Nachricht 2',
    'test.id3' => [
        'message' => 'Nachricht 3',

$messageSource->write($category, $language, $data);

The following structure will be created after writing:

📁 path_to_your_storage
  📁 de-DE
     🗎 messageCategory.php
