Translating the month name

For translating the date in a website, we can have different solutions. But here,  I am particularly discussing about find and replace method for date translation.

Lets say we have date in format F j, Y i.e May 7, 2019 where,  Month is in English Language but what if you want to display month in Spanish or any other languages i.e. maio 7, 2019 ?

Just take care of the following steps and you can achieve the translation for Month :

1. Create an array of Months where key is the default month and value is the translation for month.

2. Create function which replaces the default month with the translated month and returns the translated date string

3. Call the created funtion in step 2 and achieve the translation
