node-timezone

Node.js client library for accessing Google Time Zone API. It provides time offset data for locations on the surface of the earth. Requesting the time zone information for a specific Latitude/Longitude pair will return the name of that time zone, the time offset from UTC, and the Daylight Savings offset.

$ npm install timezoner 
    var timezoner = require('timezoner');
    /* Request timezone with location coordinates */
    timezoner.getTimeZone(
        39.6034810, // Latitude coordinate 
        -119.6822510, // Longitude coordinate 
        function (errdata) {
            if (err) {
                console.log(err);
            } else {
                console.log(data);
            }
        }
    );

#####Response data:
{ "dstOffset" : 0.0, "rawOffset" : -28800.0, "status" : "OK", "timeZoneId" : "America/Los_Angeles", "timeZoneName" : "Pacific Standard Time" }

    timezoner.getTimeZone(
        39.6034810,
        -119.6822510,
        function (errdata) {
            if (err) {
                console.log(err);
            } else {
                console.log(data);
            }
        },
        { language: 'es', key: 'YOUR_API_KEY' }
    );

The response will now be localized to Spanish.
