I'm putting the finishing touches on a multi-lingual application, and
just posted a blog entry on how I did translate validation errors
generated by ActiveRecord at:

I found it surprisingly easy, and thought I'd document it.
The translation is based on a plugin I plan to publish really really
soon, more info whith the upcoming announcement.

As I'm a newbie blogger, all feedback welcome (even if it's to say I
shouldn't post this to the ML :-)

Well the link doesn't work... hey, you did say *all* feedback welcome.

I'd be quite interested to know how this is done. My site won't be
multilingual at time of launch, but there is a possibility that it
will be someday, and I want to make it nice and easy for myself. I'm
pretty new to this whole rails thing, but I want to make sure my
project is done properly. I'll be checking back at that blog to see if
you fix it.

It works again after I logged in my blog account. Strange......
Here's the link I just visited, and that's working:
