I have a translatable model that attaches a single image, but I would like to know if it’s possible to “translate” the image as well, such as having a different image depending on the active locale.
I understand that I could just attachMany, but it seems like a sloppy workaround and I’m wondering if there’s a more intuitive way, such as $model->setAttributeTranslatable.
For example, my site has 3 languages and my model can attachOne image. Instead of changing it to attachMany for the 2 other languages, is there a better way to have the image be translatable?
(OctoberCMS 3.x and PHP 8.1)
Support for translatable file attachments has been added in RainLab.Translate v2.1.0
Now you can add the relation name to the translatable attributes property. For example:
* @var array translatable attributes
public $translatable = [
* @var array attachOne relation
public $attachOne = [
'myimage' => \System\Models\File::class
Each attachment will be unique to the locale. However, there is no fallback support, so each locale needs to be uploaded separately. A solution to this could be two define two attachments, one for fallback, and one for translation.
I hope this helps.
