How Best to Translate a Website ?

Posted 7 months ago by vincej

Ok, I have built all the infrastructure and my application will select and present sample language files inside Laravel resources / lang. I can dynamically alter the language files through a view - it all works.

However, the obvious question now arises - where in the heck do I get the various language files from, or do I really have to google every word I want in every language ? Does anyone know of downloadable language files which are at least accurate and reliable?

Then I chanced across Google's language translation API for PHP, which appears to make the whole Laravel approach redundant.

So - what is the best way to translate a website ? Where can I get language files? Should I use Google instead? What's quickest and easiest since I now have the Laravel infrastructure built?

Many Thanks !
