I am creating a site in which I need to pass data to rest API so they can use it for mobile application. I want it to use translated strings for 8 different languages. When I access the site I am able to see the translated strings. Below is my example route call.

register_rest_route('discover', '/getdiscoverlist', array(
'methods' => WP_REST_Server::CREATABLE,
'callback' => 'getDiscoverList',

in getDiscoverList I am fetching data for the custom discover post type. Can you please help which filter or hook I can use to fetch preferred data for particular language using my API

Hi, Can you please guide how to fetch the translated category. When I pass translated term ID to get_term function it is fetching English version only.
