translations.js is a small and easy-to-use jQuery page localization plugin that detects the browser language using window.navigator.language API, and automatically replaces the alternate version of your text defined in a JSON file.

How to use it:

1. Define the default strings in the data-translate attribute as these:

<h1 data-translate="I'm a text that exist in English, Italian and Spanish"></h1>
<h2 data-translate="I exist only in English and Italian"></h2>
<p data-translate="Me only in English"></p>
<span data-translate="I don't exist"></span>

<span data-translate="I have only 1 single number"></span>
<span data-translate="I have 4 numbers"></span>

2. Set the alternative content in the language JSON translations.json:

{
  "I'm a text that exist in English, Italian and Spanish": {
    "es": "Soy un texto que existe en Ingles, Italiano y Español",
    "it": "Sono un testo che esiste in Inglese, Italiano e Spagnolo" 
  },
  "I exist only in English and Italian": {
    "it": "Io esisto solo in Inglese e Italiano" 
  },
  "Me only in English":{
  },
  "I have only 1 single number": {
    "es": "Tengo solo 1 numero",
    "it": "Ho 1 solo numero" 
  },
  "I have %n numbers": {
    "es": "Tengo %n numeros",
    "it": "Ho %n numeri" 
  }
}

3. Include jQuery library and the jQuery translations.js script at the bottom of the web page. Done!

<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="translate-plugin/translations.js"></script>
