Backport: Magento 2 Emails Localization in Templates

One of the problems that you may encounter while migrating from Magento 1 to Magento 2 is the localization of letters. Usually, it is done simply by copying an email template to the appropriate folder. But what are you supposed to do if you have a multilingual site?

Method 1

This method is available in Magento 1 and implies the creation of new letter templates via Marketing > Email Templates.

Here you can create additional email templates, translate them, add additional text, etc.

After that you can assign these templates in the settings of a particular Store View.

You can do it for each email template.

This method is fairly simple, but can take quite some time.

During one of my project I did a backport of Magento 1 functionality, which somehow disappeared in Magento 2, specifically the assignment of your templates to a specific language. Earlier they were located in the folder with translations.

Method 2

Here is what you need to do to implement similar functionality in Magento 2:

  1. Override the Magento\Framework\View\Design\Fallback\RulePool class in one of your modules or a new one. In this class, you need to extend the createEmailTemplateFileRule method.

RulePool.php

  1. After that we can place our templates in the theme or in the module at <module_dir>/view/<area>/email/i18n/<locale> or <theme_dir>/<module_name>/email/i18n/<locale>.

Just like that you can save some time and effort when working with your email templates.
