Manage (Target) Language in Multilingual Applications + A Language Selector Widget (i18n)

Created 2 years ago by c@cbaTutorials10 comments – viewed 27,308 times – ( +15 ) – version 1.1
In case of a multilingual application, one might consider it a reasonable approach to store the preferred language of the user in a session variable, and after that, every time a page is requested, to check this session variable and render the page in the indicated language. This tutorial shows a Yii-way of doing this. We implement an event handler for the onBeginRequest event; as the name of the event suggests, this event handler will be called at the beginning of each request, so its a good place to check whether a language is provided (via post, session or cookie) and set the application language accordingly. We also implement a simple Language-Selector Widget, which can render the language options as ajax-links or as a drop-down list.
