Alchemy translation methods

Instead of having to translate strings and defining a default value:

Alchemy::I18n.translate("Hello World!", default: 'Hello World!')

We define this method to define the value only once:

Alchemy::I18n.translate("Hello World!")

Note that interpolation still works:

Alchemy::I18n.translate("Hello %{world}!", world: @world)

Notes

All translations are scoped into the alchemy namespace. Even scopes are scoped into the alchemy namespace.

So a call for Alchemy::translate('hello', scope: 'world') has to be translated like this:

de:
  alchemy:
    world:
      hello: Hallo
