setlocale() sets the locale for the given category . A locale is a definition of language- and culture-specific behaviors for values in the environment.

The category specifies the part of the system functionality to which the locale is applied. The following table describes the valid categories.

Category Description
LC_ALL Applies the locale to all of the categories below
LC_COLLATE Collation/character sorting order
LC_CTYPE Character classification and case conversion
LC_MESSAGES Formats used for system messages
LC_MONETARY Monetary formatting
LC_NUMERIC Numeric, non-monetary formatting
LC_TIME Date and time formatting

Calls to setlocale() only modify the locale for the current script. The locale can be returned to its default value by calling setlocale(LC_ALL, '');()


For more detailed information on locales, see the Open Group Locale docs.


PHP 3+, PHP 4+


Example 1217. Set the locale to Italian_Italy.1252

echo setlocale(LC_ALL, "it");
