Translation of template interface texts

In order to translate the texts written directly in the template file, for the interface or in your PHP class, you need to use the __('Your text here') method. Magento looks for a corresponding match within all the translation CSV files.

There is nothing to be declared in XML; you simply have to create a new folder at the root of your module and create the required CSV:

  1. Create the [extension_path]/i18n folder.

  2. Create [extension_path]/i18n/en_US.csv and add the following code:

    "Event time:","Event time:"
    "Please sign in to read more details.","Please sign in to read more details."
    "Read more","Read more"
    Create [extension_path]/i18n/en_US.csv and add the following code:
    "Event time:","Date de l'évènement :"
    "Pleasesign in to read more details.","Merci de vous inscrire pour plus de détails."
    "Read more","Lire la suite"


The CSV file contains the correspondences between the key used in the code and the value in its final language.
