Aliases

If you want to name codes differently, such as de-DE instead of de or de-CH instead of de_CH, you can define aliases in the configuration file.

After that, all adding, updating, and deleting actions will automatically use the specified aliases in the config/localization.php config file:

use LaravelLang\LocaleList\Locale; return [ 'aliases' => [ Locale::German->value => 'de-DE', Locale::GermanSwitzerland->value => 'de-CH', ], ];

If the config/localization.php file already exists, then you can add the aliases key in it and specify the desired aliases using a data array.

After this, you can, for example, add new localizations by specifying both the main code and its alias:

php artisan lang:add de de_CH

Installed locales will use the specified aliases as folder names for PHP translations and file names for JSON translations:

lang de-CH de-DE
