Since labels don’t use I18n in Rails 2.2 (I was too late in submitting the
patch), we’d have to make due with a plugin.

Installation and configuration consists of 1 easy steps:

  1. Run:
./script/plugin install git://


In your translation file:

en-US: activerecord: attributes: topic: name: A nice name

In your view:

<% form_for @topic do |f| %> <%= f.label :name %> <% end %>

The result is:

<label for="topic_name">A nice name (please ignore the minor problem with html in github)
