Having a look at http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Internatio... there are basically three options left (Localize seems dead, Multilingual might be a duplicate of Globalize and plain ri18n is probably too low level). Unfortunatly Globalize seems to be DB dependent and there's no Oracle support (I renamed the "feature" in the list above). What are the dependencies? Would it be easy to add Oracle support? BTW: I asked this question in http://wiki.globalize-rails.org/wiki/pages/Frequen... too.

Globalize was loosely based on Multilingual, but I don't think Multilingual is still under active development. Globalize is DB dependent, but there's no DB-specific code in it. It may work on Oracle right now, it's just never been tested. It would be great if you could give it a whirl, Martin. There are no dependencies, just install the plugin (note that there's a new branch for Rails 1.1 -- details at http://globalize-rails.org/wiki), setup vendor/plugin/globalize/test/config/database.yml (you'll want to configure the "test" section), and run the tests. I'd be happy to help you out with any problems. Cheers, Josh http://shnoo.gr

Hi Joshua, thanks for the answer. I'll give it a try and post the results here.
