Ruby I18n

Ruby Internationalization and localization solution.

Features:

  • translation and localization
  • interpolation of values to translations (Ruby 1.9 compatible syntax)
  • pluralization (CLDR compatible)
  • flexible defaults
  • bulk lookup
  • lambdas as translation data
  • custom key/scope separator
  • custom exception handlers
  • extensible architecture with a swappable backend

Experimental, pluggable features:

  • lambda pluralizers stored as translation data
  • RFC4647 compliant locale fallbacks (with optional RFC4646 locale validation)
  • backend cache

For more information and lots of resources see: http://rails-i18n.org/wiki

Install

gem install i18n

Install on Rails 2.3.4 (deprecated)

Rails 2.3.4 will not accept i18n gems > 0.1.3. There is an unpacked gem inside of active_support/lib/vendor which gets loaded unless gem ‘i18n’, ‘~> 0.1.3’. This requirement is relaxed in http://github.com/rails/rails/commit/6da036538334fd459156ab2789c9fae5512be5d2

The following is needed to get the new i18n gem inside vendor/plugins loaded properly.

def reload_i18n! raise “Move to i18n version 0.2.0 or greater” if Rails.version > “2.3.4” $:.grep(/i18n/).each { |path| $:.delete(path) } I18n::Backend.send :remove_const, “Simple” $: << Rails.root.join(‘vendor’, ‘plugins’, ‘i18n’, ‘lib’).to_s end

Then you can `reload_i18n!` inside an i18n initializer.
