I18n-node-2 is a library based on Node.js that can work out of the box with Express.js. I18n-node-2 integrates with applications by providing on-the-fly string extraction. Wrapping strings pending translation with the default _(“…”) method is all that is required. While running, i18n-node-2 automatically generates multiple JSON files depending on predefined locales.

I18n-node-2 uses the auto-generated JSON format to store translatable data. Prior to translation, run a sanity check of the files. With i18n-node-2 supporting plural forms, ensure that all variables remain unchanged during translation.
