This plugin adds possibility to display translatable fields grouped into tabs by locales using translations formwidget.

Can be also used in theme options form just by adding _translations field in the config (see the Documentation for example).


RainLab.Translate plugin


If you got a lot of translatable fields in a form it could be more convenient to switch all the fields locale at once rather then switching every field.

You may like my other plugins

  • Front-end hierarchic roles - Allows to manage access rights based on roles hierarchy
  • Excel - excel import-export tools
  • JWT Auth API - Token Authentication for API integrated with RainLab.User
  • Blog Views - Enables blog posts views tracking and displaying popular articles.
You can find fields.yaml code for this example in the documentation tab


In model class you need to add 'Vdomah.TranslateTabs.Behaviors.TranslateTabbable' behavior to $implement array besides TranslatableModel behavior. Then define translatable attributes as you would do usually with Translate plugin.

public $implement = [

public $translatable = ['name', 'excerpt', 'slug'];

In fields.yaml need to define _translations field like this (exact result of this config you can see on screenshot):

    span: left
    type: translations
                label: Name
                span: auto
                type: text
                label: Slug
                span: auto
                    field: name
                    type: slug
                type: text
                label: Excerpt
                span: auto
                type: textarea

Same config works for theme options form in theme.yaml.

    Thanks for this plugin. Can I use this for field type like "richeditor"? Currently, the field seems being ignored of some types.

    Don't you know, by holding CTRL when switching field language you switch all fields in form simultaneously?

    Clients don't know about Ctrl and don't want to know :) After several complains from different clients I decided to do the translations in tabs. It's just more obvious and visualy easier to understand.


Fixed locale error in Translations widget.
