Spree Product Translations
Makes product details, properties, prototypes, taxonomies and option types translatable by bridging the Globalize3 gem.
Installation and configuration
In your Gemfile, add:
Then install the gem:
Then copy the migrations to your spree application:
Finally migrate your database:
If you have pre-existing data, you'll need to run this rake task:
it will copy the original data over to the new translation tables. Globalize3 doesn't default to the original model table for the default locale like v1 used to.
How to use it
To edit the content in a specific language, simply change the locale on the language nav, and edit on the admin as usual.
Fallbacks for empty translations
If you have translations in your database (by using the spree-simple_product_translations extension for example) with empty translations (being a blank string instead of
nil) you might want to add this configuration option to an initializer in your app:
Spree::Config.set :fallbacks_for_empty_translations => true
It will then use fallbacks for empty strings too.
The tests are not updated since the original fork of the spree 0.11 compatible version. They will pretty sure fail. Feel free to fork the project and create a pull request with tests.
You might need to comment out the rspec gem requirement under config/environments/test.rb - for some reason, even with both the rspec gem and plugin installed, I would keep getting an annoying missing gem error.
Spree is officially making a choice for Test::Unit anyway, so this shouldn't create a problem.
(not that I don't like Rspec, I actually prefer it in other projects.)
Feature requests and patches welcome
