What is Vue-i18n

Vue I18n is internationalization plugin for Vue.js

  • Easy: You can introduce internationalization into your app with simple API
  • Powerful: In addition to simple translation, support localization such as pluralization, number, datetime ... etc
  • Component-oriented: You can manage locale messages on single file component

What is Verto

Verto is a multi-currency wallet that will allow access to the Vdex. Private keys are maintained in this wallet and are accessible only by its owner. Verto will also have integrative functionality of other DApps like orderbook settlement from VDEX and a crypto ratings and rankings dashboard from Vespucci.

When a trade is made on Vdex, the funds are temporarily locked until either the transaction is completed and the new funds become available, or the transaction is cancelled and funds are again available.

How to Internationalize

I know that the Verto Project was using Vue so I pulled on my experience with The Magic Frog as I also Internationalized it.

The first step is to install Vue-i18n and that can be done like so: npm i --save vue-i18n and from that you should see some changes in your package.json file.

Next step was to create a plugin javascript file that would load the package we just installed and lay the grounds for the json translation files.

Now we can import our plugin and add it to the Vue object:

From our plugin file we chose english as our locale, but it would be nice to just be able to change that on the fly. In modifying src/renderer/components/Settings/SettingsView.vue we are able to do just that with a simple dropdown.

We can't forget to add the available languages in the javascript section of the settings view.

The groundwork now done; we are set for the extraction of the strings and compilation of the strings asset.

I did those two tasks in parallel. Moving the string to the en.json file and replacing it with the new variable I just made. In this case Welcome.welcometo.

Finally I translated the entire en.json into fr.json, here is a sample:

The wallet runs as an electron app, here is the settings view in French:
