Quick ActiveRecord Extension. Adds self translating methods to translated ActiveRecord models (inspired by github.com/citizencast/acts_as_translatable)
Example: Given an ActiveRecord model with columns name_en and name_fr Adding ensures_translated_and_utf8 to the model will provide a _name method that returns the correct (column) attribute value given current I18n.locale
Rspec : require 'utf8_translatable/spec_support' => provides you with a shares example. To use it simply add it_behaves_like “utf8_translatable” to your ActiveRecord models tests. NB: this shared example only checks if the model is_utf8_translatable? == true.
