Localizing React Applications Using Gettext - Maksim Ivanov

There are a lot of solutions to localize React applications.

Most of them focus on providing ways to consume translation files based on simple JSON or YAML formats.

But that’s only one side - consumption. And they leave out tasks of creating, updating and removing those translations to developer.

In Mojang we created an automated flow to work with translations based on Gettext.

This tool was created more than 20 years ago, its format is well known by translators, and I will show how we utilize it to translate our React based front end.

This is a talk recorded on one of FikaJS Meetups
