Internationalization (I18n)     

Internationalization is a design process that ensures a product (a website or application) can be adapted to various languages and regions without requiring engineering changes to the source code. Think of internationalization as readiness for localization.

Recommended package for handling website/app is vue-i18n.

However, handling I18n in app-space is not enough. Quasar components have their own labels too. One option is to configure labels through label properties on each instance of Quasar components like QTable or QDatetime. This takes time and adds unnecessary complexity to your website/app. Instead, use the Quasar I18n (applies to Quasar components only!) system.

For a complete list of available languages, check Quasar I18n on Github.
If your desired language is not on that list, then feel free to submit a PR to add it. It takes from 5 to 10 minutes at most. We kindly welcome any language!

Configuring the Default Language

Edit /quasar.conf.js:

framework: {
i18n: 'de'

Dynamically Changing Language

Example with a QSelect to dynamically change the Quasar components language:

{ label: 'English (US)', value: 'en-us' },
{ label: 'English (UK)', value: 'en-uk' },
{ label: 'Romanian', value: 'ro' },
{ label: 'Chinese (Simplified)', value: 'zh-hans' },
{ label: 'Italian', value: 'it' }
{ label: 'Spanish', value: 'es' }
{ label: 'French', value: 'fr' }
{ label: 'German', value: 'de' },
{ label: 'Russian', value: 'ru' },

export default {
data () {
return {
lang: this.$q.i18n.lang
watch: {
lang (lang) {
// dynamic import, so loading on demand only
import(`quasar-framework/i18n/${lang}`).then(lang => {

Using Quasar I18n in App Space

Although the Quasar I18n is designed only for Quasar components, you can still use it for your own website/app components too.

"Close" label in current Quasar I18n language is:
{{ $q.i18n.label.close }}

Detecting Locale

There’s also a method to determine user locale which is supplied by Quasar out of the box:

// outside of a Vue file
import Quasar from 'quasar'
Quasar.i18n.getLocale() // returns a string

// inside of a Vue file
this.$q.i18n.getLocale() // returns a string

Handling Quasar UMD

To add a Quasar language pack you need to include the language pack JS tag for your Quasar version and also tell Quasar to use it. Example:

<!-- include this after Quasar JS tag -->
<script src=""></script>

Check what tags you need to include in your HTML files by generating a sample with $ vue init quasarframework/quasar-starter-kit-umd <folder> and specifying a language code for Quasar I18n (other than default “en-us”).
