Configuring The Locale

The default language for your application is stored in the config/app.php configuration file. You may modify this value to suit the needs of your application. You may also change the active language at runtime using the setLocale method on the App facade:

Route::get('welcome/{locale}', function ($locale) {


You may configure a "fallback language", which will be used when the active language does not contain a given translation string. Like the default language, the fallback language is also configured in the config/app.php configuration file:

'fallback_locale' => 'en',

Determining The Current Locale

You may use the getLocale and isLocale methods on the App facade to determine the current locale or check if the locale is a given value:

$locale = App::getLocale();

if (App::isLocale('en')) {
