language_name

New in version 2.12: The language_name filter was added in Twig 2.12.

The language_name filter returns the language name given its two-letter code:

1
2
{# German #}
{{ 'de'|language_name }}

By default, the filter uses the current locale. You can pass it explicitly:

1
2
3
4
5
{# allemand #}
{{ 'de'|language_name('fr') }}

{# français canadien #}
{{ 'fr_CA'|language_name('fr_FR') }}

Note

The language_name filter is part of the IntlExtension which is not installed by default. Install it first:

1
$ composer req twig/intl-extra

Then, use the twig/extra-bundle on Symfony projects or add the extension explictly on the Twig environment:

use Twig\Extra\Intl\IntlExtension;

$twig = new \Twig\Environment(...);
$twig->addExtension(new IntlExtension());
