loc.v1 translates a single input to a localized string. As such, it is recommended to use loc-2.v1 since it support single values as well as bulk translations.

This endpoint provides localization and allows a client to retrieve the suggested localization of a specific string or word. Often other VersionOne endpoints will return unlocalized strings such as suggested names or error messages. These unlocalized strings may be passed to loc.v1 which will attempt to translate the string into a locale specific string.

In a case where a locale specific string could not be found, a series of fallbacks exist. For example if French-Canadian (fr-ca) does not have a localization entry for the string "Story", the French locale (fr) will be searched, and then finally the English (en) locale will be searched. If no localization entry exists in any locale, the input string will be returned unchanged. To retrieve a localized string for a specific locale, set the "Accept-Language" HTTP Header in the request to a specific locale. For example to use French-Canadian set the header to "fr-ca".
