Translations are easy to use with a template, and give access to SilverStripe's translation facilities. Here is an example:

<%t Foo.BAR 'Bar' %>

<%t Member.WELCOME 'Welcome {name} to {site}' name=$Member.Name site="" %>

Member.WELCOME is an identifier in the translation system, for which different translations may be available. This string may include named placeholders, in braces.

'Welcome {name} to {site}' is the default string used, if there is no translation for Member.WELCOME in the current locale. This contains named placeholders.

name=$Member.Name assigns a value to the named placeholder name. This value is substituted into the translation string wherever {name} appears in that string. In this case, it is assigning a value from a property Member.Name

site="" assigns a literal value to another named placeholder, site.
