I have an ajax function in the javascript file that calls for the data in a custom module. But the problem is it always get the data for the default language. In my case it is 'en'. How do I get the data for another language.

$language = \Drupal::languageManager()->getCurrentLanguage()->getId(); 

This method always returns the default language for ajax requests. How do I get the data for the language that is mentioned in the url.


    url: "/gallery/view", 
    method :'POST',
    data: {
        category : category,
        propertyId : propertyId,
        isCorporate : isCorporate,
        brandId : brandId,
    success: function(result){}

routing :

  path: '/gallery/view'
      _controller: 'Drupal\eme_gallery\Controller\ViewGalleryImage::view'
      _title: 'Image Gallery'
      _permission: 'access content'
  • How is the langauge for your site determined? URL? Prefix? Session?

  • @Jaypan from the url prefix. eg: www.url.com/ja/html Aug 23, 2018 at 13:03

You will need to change the URL of your AJAX call to include the language prefix. So this:

url: "/gallery/view", 

Will be this:

url: "/ja/gallery/view", 
  • This doesn’t work for the english language. If I write /en/ it doesn’t work Aug 24, 2018 at 4:18
  • Do not include any prefix (en, ja etc) for the default language. You would only use /gallery/view
