Internationalization for Next.js that gets out of your way.

Support multiple languages, with your app code becoming simpler instead of more complex.

📣 Support for Next.js 13 and the app directory is coming →
import {useTranslations, useFormatter} from 'next-intl'; function UserDetails({user}) {  const t = useTranslations('UserDetails');  const format = useFormatter();   return (    <section>      <h2>{t('title')}</h2>      <p>{t('followers', {count: user.followers.length})}</p>      <p>{t('lastSeen', {time: format.relativeTime(user.lastSeen)})</p>      <Image alt={t('portrait', {username:})} src={user.portrait} />    </section>  );}

Minimalistic, yet complete

Internationalization is an essential part of the user experience, therefore next-intl gives you everything you need to get language subtleties right and has always got your back whenever you need to fine-tune a translation.
{  "UserDetails": {    "title": "User details",    "followers": "{count, plural,                    =0 {No followers yet}                    =1 {One follower}                    other {# followers}                  }",

ICU message syntax

Localize your messages with interpolation, plurals, ordinal pluralization, enum-based label selection and rich text.

// "Feb 28, 2023"format.dateTime(lastSeen, 'medium'); // "2 hours ago"format.relativeTime(lastSeen); // "$1,499.90"format.number(1499.9, {style: 'currency', currency: 'USD'});

Dates, times & numbers

Use global formats for a consistent look & feel of your app and apply fine-tuning as necessary.

Found 1 error in UserDetails.tsx:13   <h1>{t('titel')}</h1>         ~~~~~~~ Argument of type "titel" is not assignableto parameter of type "title" | "description".


Speed up development with autocompletion for message keys and catch typos early with compile-time checks.

const t = useTranslations('UserDetails'); t('followers', {count: user.followers.length}); //'bio', {b: (chunks) => <b>{chunks}</b>}); // ReactNode const format = useFormatter();const timeZone = useTimeZone();const locale = useLocale();const now = useNow();

Hooks-only API

Learn a single API that can be used across your code base to turn translations into plain strings or rich text.
