Linguistic Potluck: Crowdsourcing Localization in Rails

A session at GoGaRuCo 2012

Friday 14th September, 2012

12:00pm to 12:30pm (PST)

Some of the most interesting challenges programmers face today are found at the intersection of natural and computer languages. Natural languages don't have documented source code, well-defined APIs or stable release versions. There is no spec (unless it's French), and even native speakers of the same dialects disagree all the time. How, then, can you internationalize a web application without introducing significant overhead to your development process? This talk will explore some practical strategies for maintaining speed, flexibility, quality, and focus by letting your users handle localization for you.
