Vanguard utilizes Laravel's default localization mechanism to allow you to translate it to any language you want. All translation files are located inside
resources/lang folder. Within this directory there should be a subdirectory for each language supported by the application:
/resources /lang /en app.php /es app.php
Out of the box, you can switch among following locales:
- - English
- - Serbian Latin
- - German
More locales will be added in the future.
If you want to translate Vanguard application, all you need to do is to create subfolder inside
resources/lang directory that match your locale, copy the files from existing locale (
en for example), and translate them to your language.
Note! Vanguard specific files are
log.php. All other files are Laravel's default localization files, and there is a big chance that someone has already translated those files for you. Check it here.

For example, if we want to set our language to Russian, we would set that variable as following:
//... APP_LOCALE=ru //...
