What's this?
Ruby-GetText-Package is a Localization(L10n) Library and Tools which is
modeled after GNU gettext package.

The library converts the messages to localized messages properly using
client-side locale information. And the tools for developers support
to create, use, and modify localized the message files(message catalogs)

For Rails(ActiveRecord), Ruby-GetText-Package extracts all of
the table names and field names which the subclass of
ActiveRecord::Base has.
Even if your application is only for English, you can use gettext as
the converter of table/field names <=> display names.

And of course, Rails error messages have already been localized.

  * Simple APIs(similar GNU gettext)
  * rgettext command for creating po-files from files below:
       o ruby scripts
       o glade-2 XML file(.glade)
       o ERB file(.rhtml)
       o ActiveRecord (.rb)
  * rmsgfmt command for creating a mo-file from a po-file.
  * The po-file is compatible to GNU gettext.
    You can maintain these files to use GNU getext tools.
  * The mo-file is compatible to GNU gettext(msgfmt).
  * multi-textdomain supported.
    You can select two kind of textdomain's scope:
       o A file base (default: recommanded)
       o A Class/Module base (GetText::Container, GetText::ErbContainer,
  * CGI support (gettext/cgi)
  * ERB support (gettext/erb)
  * Ruby on Rails support (gettext/rails)
