Translating your app

GregSilcox edited this page Oct 16, 2012 · 5 revisions

To use translations in your app define some yaml like this:

# en.yml
en:
  unauthorized:
    manage:
      all: "You have no access!"

Translation for individual abilities

If you want to customize messages for some model or even for some ability define translation like this:

# models/ability.rb
...
can :create, Article
...
# en.yml
en:
  unauthorized:
    create:
      article: "Only admin may do this!"

Translating custom abilities

Also translations is available for your custom abilities:

# models/ability.rb
...
can :vote, Article
...
# en.yml
en:
  unauthorized:
    vote:
      article: "Only users which have one or more article may do this!"

Variables for translations

Finally you may use action(which contain ability like 'create') and subject(for example 'article') variables in your translation:

# en.yml
en:
  unauthorized:
    manage:
      all: "You do not have access to %{action} %{subject}!"

Enjoy!
