Create multi-language drop down lists for your web projects in a couple of minutes

 
Have you ever had to deal with the problem of creating multi-language dropdown lists with country names, continents, timezones, etc.?

To avoid having to redo this work each time you start a new web project, we have prepared this tiny service that allows you to create multi-language dropdown lists with such data in an easy way and without having to keep additional configuration files or databases.

Three simple steps to get it done!

 
The web service has been designed to be easy to use by inserting a few lines of Javascript in any html page and with no need to have a database-enabled web server.

To give you a clear picture about how dropdown lists work, we have prepared some practical examples that can be tested in just three simple steps.

  • Choose an example by clicking on the 'Open example' buttons. A window will come up with a working example and the complete source code.
  • Copy and paste the source code in an html file.
  • Open the html file in your web browser and you'll see the results.

Some practical and easy-to-use examples!

 
Example #1: simple grouped dropdown list
Example of a simple list displaying a dropdown list containing a list of countries grouped by continents with default value selection.
Example #2: simple ungrouped dropdown list
Example of a simple list displaying a dropdown list containing a list of timezones (ungrouped).
Example #3: combined dropdown lists (grouped)
Example of combined lists displaying a country list filtered by continent list.
Example #4: combined dropdown lists (ungrouped)
Example of combined lists displaying timezone list filtered by country list.

Other ways to retreive info from the lists

 
Lonelydrops API also allows you to display the multi-language text from the value code and the list code.

So, you can easily display the selected value after the SELECT element has been sent in its form.

Take a look at the example to clearly understand how it works.
Example #5: Displaying multi-language texts
Example displaying a multi-language text from its value code US in the list of countries.

Why we created this service?

 
Some time ago, every time we started a new project where country or timezone dropdowns were needed, we had to make the effort to maintain and build (almost from scratch) the dropdowns and usually in a multi-language environment (English, Spanish, French, Italian, Catalan, Basque, ...)

Tired of doing these maintenance tasks and manual db loads we prepared a small website that allows anybody to create dynamic dropdown lists with all this data and completely multi-lingual in such an easy way that there's no need to keep these values (country list, timezone list,...) on any additional database. In a matter of seconds, dropdowns will be ready containing, for example, the country list sorted by continents or timezone list sorted by countries.
