ngx-translate with Angular 2

I wanted to add internationalization (i18n) support via ngx-translate to my MEAN application that I created with ng-fullstack generator but there was a warning which said
“if you’re still on Angular <4.3, please use Http from @angular/http with http-loader@0.1.0."

So, I should use "Http" module from "@angular/http" instead of "HttpClient" module from "@angular/common/http".

I also need the correct version of http-loader:

npm install @ngx-translate/http-loader@0.1.0 --save

Here is the configuration that I use to cope with it: (Please note that my i18n folder and app.module.ts file are both under the same folder)

import { NgModule } from "@angular/core";
import { HttpModule, Http } from "@angular/http";
import { FormsModule, FormBuilder } from "@angular/forms";
import { BrowserModule } from "@angular/platform-browser";
import { App } from "./app";
import { ReCaptchaModule } from 'angular2-recaptcha';
import { TranslateModule, TranslateLoader } from "@ngx-translate/core";
import { TranslateHttpLoader } from "@ngx-translate/http-loader";
export function HttpLoaderFactory(httpClient: Http) {
return new TranslateHttpLoader(httpClient, "i18n/", ".json");
imports: [
loader: {
provide: TranslateLoader,
useFactory: HttpLoaderFactory,
deps: [Http]
