Overview

Rake task which creates translated locales files of a rails project from source locales. Translations are 'bulk' translations from google, and might be reviewed but that's a easy first step. Create your locales files with your own language and run the task with targeted languages. It uses the gem 'easy_translator' which use google translations api.

Usage

rake i18n:translate['en','fr;es'].

Separate targets languages symbols with semicolons. /!\ Don't put space after the coma for rake tasks parameters.

With no additional argument, it will translate and create locales for all your source locales. If you want to just do the work with only one locale source, pass an additional path to file source argument to rake tasks :

rake i18n:translate['en','fr;es','config/locales/user/en.yml'].

Convention

The source locale is supposed to be named <lang>.yml where lang is the language symbol (fr, en , es … and so on)
