1 config.inc public Config::getTranslated($key = '', $args = array(), $options = array())

Gets translated data from this configuration object.


string $key: A string that maps to a key within the configuration data. For instance in the following configuration array:

    'foo' => array(
      'bar' => 'baz',

A key of 'foo.bar' would return the string 'baz'. However, a key of 'foo' would return array('bar' => 'baz'). If no key is specified, then an empty string is returned. If the key is not 'translatable' key then the original string is returned. If the key's value is not a string then an empty string is returned.

array $args: An associative array of replacements to make. Replacements are made in the same way as the t() function.

array $options: An associative array of additional options, with the following elements:

  • 'langcode' (defaults to the current language): The language code to translate to a language other than what is used to display the page.
  • 'context' (defaults to the empty context): The context the source string belongs to.

Return value

string|NULL: The translated data that was requested.
