EMailPreSend Hook Language Translation


Recommended Posts


I'm using Lang::trans within a php hook for EMailPreSend.

I set 'credited' in each language override file:

$_LANG['locale'] = "en_GB";
$_LANG['credited'] = "has been credited";


$_LANG['locale'] = "ro_RO";
$_LANG['credited'] = ": tranzacția a fost creditată";

Then, in the hook:

$merge_fields = [];
$paymentMethodTitle = "Bank Transfer";
$newSubject = $paymentMethodTitle.' '.Lang::trans('credited');
$merge_fields['custom_subject'] = $newSubject;
$vars = array_merge( $vars, $merge_fields );
return $vars;

In the Email Template, the subject is {$custom_subject}, which shows $newSubject variable just fine.

But I guess Lang::trans doesn't use the client's language.

The email template (body) uses the client's language without issue, but ... how in the world do I get Lang::trans in EMailPreSend to use the client's language?

I just want the client's language to be used when sending the client an email (call me silly!). 

Thanks for any clues!
