The Ruby on Rails I18n core API

A session at RubyConf India 2010

  • Neeraj Kumar

Across the world, natural or regional languages differ in many ways, (e.g. in pluralization rules). Therefore, Internationalization became a complex problem and it is hard to provide tools for solving all problems at once. Sven Fuchs focused to provide an extensible framework and easy to use gem that is Ruby I18n (internationalization) gem.

The Ruby I18n gem is mainly designed for translating your application to a single custom language other than English or for providing multi-language support for your ruby on rails application. The pivotal point of the new I18n api in Rails is the I18n module which is provided as a gem and shipped with Rails (starting from Rails 2.2) in ActiveSupport’s vendor directory.

Therefore, during my presentation I will try to go over some of the advanced optional features and architecture of I18n gem. Besides, I will also try to cover begin with I18n gem, setup, benefits, the work flow, what's in? and what's not? Etc.
