This plugin uses Rails I18n ( to allow templates localization.
You can localize your views using the following naming convention:

And you can also localize rescue files:


If you don't want to localize a file (like a xml file), simply don't move it and it will be
rendered as default to all languages.

This is an alternative to Rails 2.3 templates localization schema. If you are
localizing almost all of your views, it definitely suits you better because
your views will be better organized.


Install LocalizedTemplates is very easy. If you are running run on Rails 2.3
just do the following:

  gem sources -a
  sudo gem install josevalim-localized_templates

In RAILS_ROOT/config/environment.rb:

  config.gem "josevalim-localized_templates",  :lib => "localized_templates", :source => ""

If you want it as plugin, just do:

   script/plugin install git://

If you are running on Rails 2.2, you should use version 0.3.1:

    cd myapp
    git clone git://
    cd vendor/plugins/localized_templates
    git checkout v0.3.1
    rm -rf ./.git
