I'm trying to get the locale title (dutch: nl_nl) of an entry, in the english version of the same post. I want to do this so that on hover it shows the English title's Dutch version.

Any help is appreciated!

You can use the 'locale' and 'id' attributes in your query to request the same entry in another locale.

{{ entry.title }}<br>
{{ craft.entries.id([entry.id]).locale('nl_nl').first.title }}

Update. If there is any chance that the entry/section is disabled for that locale you can also check it first, like so.

{% set nlEntry = craft.entries.id([entry.id]).locale('nl_nl').first %}
{% if nlEntry %}
    {{ nlEntry.title }}
{% endif %}
  • Had no idea i could use a twig command like this. It worked like a charm, thanks!

    Glad it worked. Btw... I thought I should add — to be safe you might also want to check to make sure the entry is enabled for the other locale. I added an example. May 12, 2015 at 4:55

Thx, this is how I used it to get the titles of all events in the current language:

{% set locale = craft.i18n.getCurrentLocale() %}
{% set events = craft.entries.section('events').level(1).locale(locale) %}
{% for event in events %}
    <p>{{ event.title }}</p
{% endfor %}
