The FusionAuth theme can be localized to better server your end users. In each theme you may specify one to many language specific message bundles to translate text rendered in a theme into a user’s preferred language.
If you’re just looking into localizing your theme, take a look at our community provided and maintained message bundles.
You may also want to review our localization and internationalization documentation.
In the Messages tab of your theme editor you may specify one to many languages. Once you have specified a key and value the key may be used in any template to display a localized string.
Consider the following message bundle and theme usage example with English and German messages defined.
If I have selected German as my locale, I will be greeted with
Guten Tag rendered on the page, if I have English selected I will instead find the greeting
The locale is determined by the locale value. The locale is resolved on each request using the following precedence:
localerequest parameter if present on the HTTP request. This is useful if you already know the user’s preferred locale prior to redirecting them to FusionAuth to complete authentication.Example request
The user selects a language during login using the locale selector or there is a
Accept-Languageheader if present on the HTTP request
The system default locale as determined by the underlying operating system
Note that the user’s preferredLanguages settings are not used to select a locale for the hosted login pages.
