I just added the de.yml with german translations.

Thanks. I still haven't decided will I ship user-contributed translations with will_paginate, but I might if there are contributions for most major languages. Yours look fine, so I'll keep them around until there are more I can ship all together.

Sure. I´m fine with that because it´s not too hard to add those lines manually anyway. I just thought it would be nice to have them right after installing/updating.

I think I remember that it is a bad idea to include the translations with the gem, because Rails loads all translation files, whether they are used or not. Maybe it is a better approach to store the translations in gists and collect all of them on a Wiki-Page (Devise does it like this).

OK, that sounds reasonable. So the translation can also be found here https://gist.github.com/1141979

I've added an Arabic translation (another pull request) as well.

Danke für die Übersetzung @rockdog!

Could you perhaps clarify how translations are dealt with at the moment?


mislav commented Oct 15, 2016

Thanks for the contribution, but I've decided not to store translations for other languages in this library. The reason behind my decision is that I would have a hard time maintaining those translations in the long run, especially if I needed to add new keys. This library will only ship with English translation as an example of how anyone can translate will_paginate themselves in their own apps.
