Project Description

In this project, we will learn to create a simple web app using React. We will break it down into smaller React components comprising text, numbers, and dates and also learn to navigate between these pages without the need to refresh the entire page. Moreover, we will use plain CSS to improve its visual appeal.

Once the website is ready, we will add a language selection drop-down. Users can select their preferred language from a drop-down menu, and the website will translate all content, including numbers and dates, into the selected language. We will use the react-intl library to achieve localization and make sure the website is accessible to people from various parts of the world.
