🌐 Mundo: i18n with Gettext for Rails
It's time for Rails to join the rest of the programming community with the internationalizaton / localization standard: Gettext. This library brings together the best practices of existing gems, code snippets floating around the internet for i18n, and fuses them into one modern library for getting your app delivered in multiple languages.
- What's wrong with YML?
- Stats on international users of sites
- Difficulty with i18n approaches
- Push Rails forward to adopting Gettext, a well-known programming community standard
- Provide a "golden path" for shipping multiple-language apps with Rails
- Build on the translation infrastructure that exists in the Ruby community where possible
