Locales Tag

Create links to localized content.

Overview

This tag is used to access all the locales any given entry or term is available in. It's most commonly used as a language switcher.

Each locale's system data, as configured in config/statamic/sites.php, is available inside of a locale array.

Examples

Iterating over locales

Loop through in each locale to get URLs to translated versions of an entry or taxonomy term.

<ul>
{{ locales }}
<li><a href="{{ permalink }}">View in {{ locale:name }}</a></li>
{{ /locales }}
</ul>

Targeting a locale

You can also specify a locale directly instead of looping through them all.

{{ locales:fr }}
<a href="{{ permalink }}">View in French</a>
{{ /locales:fr }}

Excluding the current locale

You can choose to not show the current locale in a list.

{{ locales }}
{{ if ! is_current }}
<a href="{{ permalink }}">View in {{ locale:name }}</a>
{{ /if }}
{{ /locales }}
