Anyway to parse a localized date string into a Date object?

From my form , using jQuery Datepicker , I get dates in textfields
already formatted as :

Parameters: { “project”=>{ “start_shooting_date”=>“Mercredi 1
Fvrier, 2012”, “latest_publish_date”=>“Mercredi 8 Fvrier,
2012”}…}

is there any way to parse and convert these dates ?

there is a trick: I can store more convertible values in hidden
textfields … but it’s a trick…

thanks for your feedback

Checkout
http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-1.9.3/libdoc/date/rdoc/Date.html#method-c-parse
assuming you use 1.9.3, there is also #strptime

Thanks , I already tried that , but it’s a localized string…
Date.parse(“Mercredi 1 Fvrier, 2012”)

even if the I18n.locale = :fr ( french)
it raises an error => ArgumentError: invalid date
