### IMPORTANT:

Master Branch is the newest version using hooks (>= v10).

```bash
$ >=v10.0.0
npm i react-i18next
```

**react-native: To use hooks within react-native, you must use react-native v0.59.0 or higher**

For the legacy version please use the [v9.x.x Branch](https://github.com/i18next/react-i18next/tree/v9.x.x)

```bash
$ v9.0.10 (legacy)
npm i react-i18next@legacy
```

### Documentation

The documentation is published on [react.i18next.com](https://react.i18next.com)
The general i18next documentation is published on [www.i18next.com](https://www.i18next.com)

### What will my code look like?

**Before:** Your react code would have looked something like:

```jsx
...
<div>Just simple content</div>
<div>
  Hello <strong title="this is your name">{name}</strong>, you have {count} unread message(s). <Link to="/msgs">Go to messages</Link>.
</div>
...
```

**After:** With the trans component just change it to:

```jsx
...
<div>{t('simpleContent')}</div>
<Trans i18nKey="userMessagesUnread" count={count}>
  Hello <strong title={t('nameTitle')}>{{name}}</strong>, you have {{count}} unread message. <Link to="/msgs">Go to messages</Link>.
</Trans>
...
```

### Why i18next?

- **Simplicity:** no need to change your webpack configuration or add additional babel transpilers, just use create-react-app and go.
- **Production ready** we know there are more needs for production than just doing i18n on the clientside, so we offer wider support on [serverside](https://www.i18next.com/supported-frameworks.html) too (nodejs, php, ruby, .net, ...). **Learn once - translate everywhere**.
- **Beyond i18n** comes with [locize](https://locize.com) bridging the gap between developement and translations - covering the whole translation process.
