I've been running around nuts searching for decent plugin-ready solution to add Polylang functionality to WordPress Customizer and ran across GitHub repository which had this solution. So I polished it and converted it to plugin. Since then I have no need to manually add hooks, filters and additional scripts to add Polylang language support to Customizer.
