Languages (important)

When changing the language while testing you have to restart the PHP test server, otherwise nothing will change in the browser!

To make the language dependencies work with gettext on Linux, it is important that the language you want to support is also
suppported by your Linux installation.

Sample: Dutch language (nl_NL)

On Linux:

sudo apt-get install language-pack-nl-base

Check your supported languages:

locale -a

Output should be something like:

nl_AW
nl_AW.utf8
nl_BE.utf8
nl_NL.utf8

Now in your application's locale folder:

locale
  -- nl_NL.utf8
  ----- LC_MESSAGES
  ------- messages.po
  ------- messages.mo

In your config/environment/development.php (and also production):

'i18n' => [
   'activate' => true,
   'config' => [
      'language' => 'nl_NL.utf8',     // language
      'domain' => 'messages',         // basename .mo file
      'pathLocale' => 'locale'        // local folder relative to root
   ]
],
