Yet another jQuery plugin for multilingual websites that automatically generates links to translate your website by switching between languages without page refresh.

How to use it:

1. Load the necessary JavaScript files in the html document.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="src/langs.min.js"></script>
<script src="src/jquery.multilang.min.js"></script>

2. Define the strings to be translated.

<div id="example">
  <h1 class="multilang" lang="es">Título</h1>
  <h1 class="multilang" lang="en">Title</h1>
  <p class="multilang" lang="es">Hola Mundo!</p>
  <p class="multilang" lang="en">Hello World!</p>
</div>

3. Call the function on the top container. Done.

$(function () {
  $('#example').multilang();
});

4. Set the initial language. Default: browser language.

$('#example').multilang({
  defaultLang: 'en'
});

5. Hide the language switcher and use URL to translate the webpage.

<div id="example">
  <p class="multilang" lang="es">Hola Mundo! <a href="?lang=en">EN Version</a></p>
  <p class="multilang" lang="en">Hello World! <a href="?lang=es">ES Version</a></p>
</div>
$('#example').multilang({
  menu: false
});

7. Customize the languages (Without the need of lang.js).

$('#example').multilang({
  languages:{
    'es':{'name':'Spanish','nativeName':'Español'},
    'en':{'name':'English','nativeName':'English'}
  }
});

8. Use images instead of language links.

$('#example').multilang({
  pixFormat:'png',
  pathToPix:'src'
});
