Sending redis a request for each of those thousands of translations scattered throughout your app is slow. This gem memoizes those requests, and sets up a simple mechanism to bust the cache.

And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install cached_key_value_store
In your initializer:
I18n.backend = I18n::Backend::CachedKeyValueStore.new($redis)

You can also call
#update_version!(locale) yourself to signal that the
translations have been modified.
on_update_version hook will be triggered every time the version is
