I have been ask to develop a Korean/Japanese/English website and I
would like to do it in rails. I was wondering what is the best way
for doing this.
I have read that ruby’s unicode support isn’t great? I have never
worked with unicode before so I am completely lost and trying to read
online doesn’t help much.
Has anyone done that before?
- What charset for example should I use in my mysql table? Would
UTF8_unicode_ci be okay, or what would be the best unicode encoding
to support all languages and search into the database? I also would
like to use something like act_as_ferret for search.
- What would be the best way to configure rails for unicode encoding?
- What is the best way for doing a multilingual site and keep
translation? Of both content in .rhtml files, code, and database?
Any help/advices would be greatly appreciated.
