Implementing Internationalization with i18n in Adobe CQ5

Implementing Internationalization with i18n in Adobe CQ5

This post will explain how to implement Internationalization with i18n in Adobe CQ5

Configuring i18 keys:

Create a sling:folder i18n inside apps or apps/<<application>> or inside the components folder based on the scope. e.g. /apps/i18n or apps/myapp/i18n or apps/myapp/global/components/mycomponent/i18n

Create a folder for each language inside 118n folder
Assign mixin to the language folders created in the previous step (e.g. en, ar etc) from crx console mix:language
For the language nodes (e.g. en, ar etc) add String property jcr: language, value = ISO language code (en, es etc)

Create nodes of type sling:MessageEntry for each field label
Add 2 properties sling:key = <keyname> and sling:message = <message>

Save all the changes

Using the i18n keys in JSP:

<%@page session="false"%>
<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/functions" prefix="fn" %>
<%@page import="java.util.Locale,java.util.ResourceBundle,com.day.cq.i18n.I18n"%>
<%@include file="/libs/foundation/global.jsp"%>
final Locale pageLocale = currentPage.getLanguage(false);
final ResourceBundle resourceBundle = slingRequest.getResourceBundle(pageLocale);
I18n i18n = new I18n(resourceBundle);
<%= i18n.get("cartItem") %>

  5. Hi! My recommendation is to evaluate an online localization tool like https://poeditor.com if you need to internationalize your apps.
