To use localization with Builder, you must integrate with your codebase so that your app and Builder localization coordinate with one another. This entails:

  1. Passing the locale to the BuilderComponent or Content. depending on your SDK. For details on the SDKs, read SDK Comparison.
  2. Passing the locale value in the options object when fetching content from the API to get JSON with resolved, localized values.

Though the syntax varies depending on the framework, the concept is the same. Select your framework below for examples.

Tip: Passing the locale to the BuilderComponent or RenderContent emits the locale while previewing or editing so the Visual Editor displays localized values.

For whole-page localization, specify your locale as a targeting attribute when fetching your Builder content from the Content API.

For example, given a greeting object, with localized values for en-US and fr-Fr, Builder would transform it to Hello or Bonjour depending on the locale:

// orginal object with values for each locale
"greeting": {
  "en-US": "Hello",
  "fr-Fr": "Bonjour"
}

Builder transforms the object to use the value that corresponds to the locale, as follows:

// locale=en-US
"greeting":"Hello"
// locale=fr-Fr
"greeting": "Bonjour"

When your codebase and Builder localization are successfully integrated, you can use any of Builder's localization techniques.
