protected function StringTranslationTrait::t

protected StringTranslationTrait::t($string, array $args = array(), array $options = array())

Translates a string to the current language or to a given language.

See \Drupal\Core\StringTranslation\TranslatableMarkup::__construct() for important security information and usage guidelines.

In order for strings to be localized, make them available in one of the ways supported by the Localization API. When possible, use the \Drupal\Core\StringTranslation\StringTranslationTrait $this->t(). Otherwise create a new \Drupal\Core\StringTranslation\TranslatableMarkup object.


string $string: A string containing the English text to translate.

array $args: (optional) An associative array of replacements to make after translation. Based on the first character of the key, the value is escaped and/or themed. See \Drupal\Component\Render\FormattableMarkup::placeholderFormat() for details.

array $options: (optional) An associative array of additional options, with the following elements:

  • 'langcode' (defaults to the current language): A language code, to translate to a language other than what is used to display the page.
  • 'context' (defaults to the empty context): The context the source string belongs to. See the Internationalization topic for more information about string contexts.

Return value

\Drupal\Core\StringTranslation\TranslatableMarkup An object that, when cast to a string, returns the translated string.
