A translation module for AngularJS

angularjs, bower, i18n, javascript, npm-package, translation
bower install use-angular-translate



This project has been discontinued since 2024-01-15 and this project is now archived. As the AngularJS ecosystem itself has stopped long-term support since January 2022, you may already be using Angular 2+ and some of the other cool translation tools. Although it is highly recommended that you to migrate away from AJS v1, if you are still actively using AngularJS and cannot migrate yet, you may want to look at HeroDevs who offer extended support. We are not familiar with them.

More information on this decision are archived in the issue #1921.

The project resources will remain read-only for everyone. Feel free to fork.

Get support

Most of the time, we are getting support questions of invalid configurations. We encourage everyone to have a look at our documentation website. If you think the documentation is not correct (bug) or should be optimized (enhancement) please file an issue.

If you are still having difficulty after looking over your configuration carefully, please post a question to StackOverflow with a specific tag. Especially if the question are related to AngularJS or even JavaScript/browser basic technologies (maybe your issue is not related to angular-translate after all).

If you have discovered a bug or have a feature suggestion, feel free to create an issue on GitHub. Please follow the guideline within the issue template. See also next headline.

Please note: We cannot provide support for neither JavaScript nor AngularJS itself. In both cases, a platform like StackOverflow is much more ideal.


We got a lot of great feedback from the community so far! More and more people use this module and they are always thankful for it and the awesome support they get. I just want to make sure that you guys know: All this wouldn't have been possible without these great contributors and everybody who comes with new ideas and feature requests! So THANK YOU!

Contributing to angular-translate is fairly easy.

This document shows you how to get the project, run all provided tests and generate a production ready build.

Unit tests

Note: Check that dependencies are be installed (npm install).

The unit tests are available with npm test which is actually a shortcut for grunt test. It performs tests under the current primary target version of AngularJS. Use npm run-script test-scopes for testing other scoped versions as well.
