is_translatable

This is a simple library geared towards translating dynamic text in your database. Unlike many similar libaries, is_translatable uses a single table for all translations, so once it's hooked up you won't need to do anything fancy in your DB migrations to add support for translations.

Usage

Add the 'translatable' declaration to your model and specify the columns you want translated:

class TranslateMe < ActiveRecord::Base
  translatable :title, :description
end

Now you can get/set translations on those columns (defaulting to the current locale):

I18n.locale = :es
t = TranslateMe.new
t.set_translation(:title, 'In Spanish')
t.get_translation(:title) # 'In Spanish'

Or if you want to override the locale:

t.set_translation(:title, 'In French', :fr) # specific override
t.get_translation(:title, :fr) # 'In French'

Installation

Add the following line to your Gemfile:

gem 'is_translatable'

Then run:

bundle exec rails g is_translatable_migration
