  • i18n on Rails: A Twitter Approach

    by Cameron Dutro

    Twitter's internationalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) model doesn't follow traditional methods. Instead of contracting out to professional translators, Twitter maintains an active community of over 500,000 volunteers who have helped successfully launch Twitter in 28 languages, including right-to-left languages like Hebrew and Arabic. Learn about some of the technical challenges we face, how to translate a Rails application at scale, and what to do when the i18n gem and po files aren't quite enough. We'll take a look at the tricky stuff too, like dates, times, lists, plurals, alphabetization, and capitalization using the twitter_cldr gem, and go over internationalization best practices. Finally, we'll explain how to maintain internationalization of your Javascript alongside your Rails code for an end-to-end solution.

    At 10:30am to 11:15am, Monday 23rd April
