Eric Barnes, the curator of Laravel News, recently decided to publish guest posts. Mike Bronner contributed the first guest post on how to install Z-Ray in Homestead.  Today, an article written by me was published.

Did you know that several countries throughout the world have more than one official language? For example, my home country Belgium has three; French, Dutch, and German. Most Belgians also speak English. Laravel’s Eloquent ORM is a very powerful part of Laravel. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide support for multilingual models out of the box. Adding that functionality yourself isn’t that difficult.

When starting out with Laravel, Eric's Laravel News was invaluable to my learning process. So it feels great to give something back. It still is by far my favourite newsletter and source of Laravel related news. If you use the framework in any way be sure to subscribe.
