If you are looking for a multi language support website in laravel then we will help you how to add multiple languages in laravel. we will use laravel trans() to create a multilingual language website. Also, we will change text and messages on the change of dropdown using jquery.



In this example, I will show you localization - laravel localization example. Laravel's localization features provide a convenient way to retrieve text in different languages, allowing you to easily support multiple languages within your application. So, here I will show you how to create localization or laravel dynamic language.

So, let's follow the steps to adding multi languages website support in laravel.

Step 1: Install Laravel

We are creating a new project setup for this example. So, create a new project using the below command.

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel blog

Laravel's localization features provide a convenient way to retrieve text in different languages, allowing you to easily support multiple languages within your application.


Step 2: Create a Localization File

In this step, we will create a localization file language-wise. here we will create two files First one is for English and the Second one is for Chinese. And just copy and paste the below code into the given path and write down your custom message or value.



return [
    'welcome' => 'This is a welcome message !',




return [
    'welcome' => '这是一个欢迎信息 !',


Step 3: Add Route in web.php

In this step, we will create two routes one for the display view page with language dropdown and message and another for changing languages using jquery.

Now, add the below route to the web.php file.


Route::get('index', '[email protected]');
Route::get('change/lang', '[email protected]_change')->name('LangChange');



Step 4: Create Controller

In this step, now we create a new controller as a LocalizationController. This controller helps to manage layouts and change language dynamically using the dropdown.

Add the below code in your terminal to create a new controller.

php artisan make:controller LocalizationController


Now, add the below code in your LocalizationController.


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App;

class LocalizationController extends Controller
    public function index()
        return view('welcome');
    public function lang_change(Request $request)
        session()->put('locale', $request->lang);  
        return view('welcome');


Step 5: Create Blade File

In this step, we will create a blade file to view our output.

<!DOCTYPE html>

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

    <script src=""></script>
    <div class="container">          
        <div class="row" style="text-align: center;margin-top: 40px;">
            <h2>How to Create Multi Language Website in Laravel -</h2><br>
            <div class="col-md-2 col-md-offset-3 text-right">
                <strong>Select Language: </strong>
            <div class="col-md-4">
                <select class="form-control Langchange">
                    <option value="en" {{ session()->get('locale') == 'en' ? 'selected' : '' }}>English</option>
                    <option value="zhh" {{ session()->get('locale') == 'zhh' ? 'selected' : '' }}>Chinese</option>                    
            <h1 style="margin-top: 80px;">{{ __('message.welcome') }}</h1>
<script type="text/javascript">  
    var url = "{{ route('LangChange') }}";
        window.location.href = url + "?lang="+ $(this).val();
