    Source Code:
    Welcome to the official spigot page of this plugin: Advanced Multi Language!

    This plugin is created with spigot1.8.3 but it works with 1.8.x and 1.9.x and up.
    Support for BungeeCord since version 1.4!

    What does this plugin?

    This plugin let your players select their language with a simple command, yes simple. Just the translation of "language" in their own language ;)
    But, yeah ... if they have set their language and then?
    Well, then you could send players messages from the server in their selected language with the easy to use API.
    With this API developers could get the language of the player and send them a message in their language! :D
    It sends different messages to players based on their language, it does NOT translate the ingame chat messages!

    If you are a server owner
    Hi there ;)
    You only needs to put this plugin in your plugins folder and restart the server so the plugin is loaded.
    Attention: you must create the database mannualy if you want to use MySQL! The table is going to create automatically :)
    Let the players set their language with one of the commands.
    You can choose between MySQL or flatfile saving in the config file.
    Every language can be disabled in het config.yml if you want that players can't choose that language.
    I recommend to use the MySQL if you use BungeeCord so the data is the same accross your network.

    Developers & API
    Its just easy to get the language of the player.
    All you need to do is using this code:
    Code (Text):
    String language = AdvancedMultiLanguageAPI.getLanguageOfUuid(String uuid);
    String uuid = the UUID of the player .toString() so of you have a player you could use player.getUniqueId().toString();
    You recieve the language of a player in an abbreviation.
    The abbreviations are:
    • For English: EN
    • For French: FR
    • For German: DE
    • For Dutch: NL
    • For Spanish: ES
    • For Russian: RU
    • For Latvian: LV
    • For Italian: IT
    • For Bulgarian: BG
    • For Hungarian: HU
    • For Dansk: DK
    • For Chinese: CHS
    • For Polish: PL
    • For Portuguese: PT
    • For Slovenia: SLO
    • For Lithuanian: LT
    • For Turkish: TK
    • More coming soon*
    Once you retrieved the language you can get the translated message par example of a file under /plugins/<plugin>/messages with a file named EN.yml
    This is all your choise. :)

    Here you have a comprehensively example with a joinEvent
    Code (Text):
        public void onPlayerJoin(PlayerJoinEvent event) {

            Player player = event.getPlayer();
            String uuid = player.getUniqueId().toString();
            String language = AdvancedMultiLanguage.getLanguageOfUuid(uuid);

            //Check if the language is English
            if(language.equalsIgnoreCase("EN")) {
                player.sendMessage(ChatColor.YELLOW + "Welcome to the server " + player.getName() + "!");

            //Check if the language is Dutch
            if(language.equalsIgnoreCase("NL")) {
                player.sendMessage(ChatColor.YELLOW + "Welkom op de server " + player.getName() + "!");

            //Check if the language is French
            if(language.equalsIgnoreCase("FR")) {
                player.sendMessage(ChatColor.YELLOW + "Bienvenue sur le serveur " + player.getName() + "!");
    Or the New method in the API.
    Get the translated message located in plugins\<your plugin>\messages\EN.yml
    EN is the language such as EN.yml, NL.yml, DE.yml, FR.yml, ...
    The path is the path in the config, example: "usage" or "messages.usage".

    An example to use here:
    Code (Text):

                    Player p = (Player) sender;
                    String message = AdvancedMultiLanguageAPI.getMessage(p.getUniqueId().toString(), "usage", Main.plugin.getName());
    If a player changes his language will an event being called.
    You can listen it with the following code as example.
    Code (Text):
    public void onPlayerChangeLanguage(LanguageChangeEvent event) {
    // you can get the player that changes his language
    Player player = event.getPlayer();

    // you can get the language that the player is changing to
    Language language = event.getLanguage();

    // you can cancel the event
