As joomla cms is used by people from different countries with different language. Most joomla extension developer need to keep their joomla extension compatible for translation. Joomla support language files for translation string so it’s not a big deal. Again, it’s not like we always use the translation strings in xml(joomla form api xml) and php scripts but sometimes need to use them in Javascript. Adding translation in javascript in joomla is bit tricky. Here we will clear this for new developer.

We will split the tutorial in 3 easy step for better understanding.

Write the translation string in .ini language file as we do always



Declare translation string in .php script to add it in a global js object.



In any custom .js file injected from joomla you can now use the string as, make sure that you inject inject the js after you inject the translation string in step2

var myvalue = Joomla.JText._('MOD_EXAMPLE_CUSTOM_STRING');

If you think this is use full then share it in your network. Spread the Joomla love.
