ActiveAdmin Translate

Translate your Globalize3 ActiveModel translations in ActiveAdmin, using jQueryUI tabs to switch between the locales.

Installation

Add the gem to your Gemfile

gem 'activeadmin-translate'

and install it with Bundler:

$ bundle

Configuration

Set available languages

ActiveAdmin Translate takes the available languages from I18n.available_locales, so you want to configure them in your application.rb like

config.i18n.available_locales = [:en, :de, :fr, :it]

Include ActiveAdmin Translate

You need to import the SASS for styling the tabs to app/assets/stylesheets/active_admin.css.scss:

@import "active_admin/translate";

Usage

Make your translations accessible

In order to access the translations of your model and be able to write them on save, you need to make attributes accessible in your model. Globalize3 stores the model translations in a separate table that is accessible as translations in your model:

class GlobalizedModel < ActiveRecord::Base
  attr_accessible :translations, :translations_attributes
  accepts_nested_attributes_for :translations
end

Translate your ActiveAdmin forms

To translate your form you need to use the translate_inputs form helper:

form do |f|
  f.translate_inputs do |t|
    t.input :title
    t.input :description
  end
end

Translate your ActiveAdmin attributes table

To show the attributes for all locales, you use the translate_attributes_table_for view helper:

show do |model|
  panel 'Globalized Model' do
    translate_attributes_table_for model do
      row :title
      row :description do |p|
        BlueCloth.new(p.teaser).to_html.html_safe
      end
    end
  end
end

Localize the languages

To localize your locale names, use the following I18n key structure per locale:

en:
  active_admin:
    translate:
      en: "English"

and add more translations with the registered locale symbol.
