I have a node with an array of multiple languages.

 [19] => Drupal\node\Entity\Node Object
            [in_preview] => 
            [values:protected] => Array
                    [vid] => Array
                            [x-default] => 19

                    [langcode] => Array
                            [x-default] => en
                            [ca] => ca

I'm getting its url as:

$options = array('absolute' => TRUE);
$link = \Drupal\Core\Url::fromRoute('entity.node.canonical', ['node' => $key], $options);

print($link) is giving me http://test-d8.local/en/node/19 where as I want url of "ca" language not "en" language. i.e. http://test-d8.local/ca/node/19

Is there any way that gives node translations of particular langcode?

This line $language = $entity->get('langcode')->value; is giving me the value of chosen language from select list.


You want to use toUrl() with the language option.

$node->toUrl('canonical', ['language' => $node->language()]);

Unfortunately, toUrl() currently doesn't automatically respect the active language.

  • $node->toUrl('canonical', ['language' => $node->language()]; is not working. I added $node->toUrl('canonical', ['language' => $node->language()]->toString(); Now its giving /en/node/19 not even absolute url. – Sugandh Khanna Jun 21 '16 at 9:32
  • To make it absolute you can use the setAbsolute method $url->setAbsolute(TRUE) – Eyal Jun 21 '16 at 13:07
$language = 'ca';
$link = $value->getTranslation($language)->url();
$title =  $value->getTranslation($language)->title->value;

this worked for me.


You can get the translation of the node like this:

$node = $node->getTranslation('ca');

And, depending what you need, you can get the link or url like this:

$link = $node->toLink();
$url = $node->toUrl();
  • Doesn't actually work like that AFAIK, see my answer. – Berdir Jun 21 '16 at 9:18
  • I have tried this, but $node = $value->getTranslation('ca'); $link = $node->toUrl(); print_r($link);die; is giving a 404 infinite loop. – Sugandh Khanna Jun 21 '16 at 9:39
