Easy way to output translatable selection dropdown's in rails forms?

I have been looking for some time now to get easy translateable
dropdown’s for my rails forms and still unable to find a good gem,
to approach this.

My goal is to:

  • Insert a form collection selection ( dropdown ) wich holds a
    of values and have that collection of values translated in several
  • Be able to insert based on current rails I18n locale the right
    of values for that locale

Carmen gem does this for the languages but Ill need a global solution
my own collections,
Anyone could recommend me a gem or method on how to approach? Im rather
stuck on this one

IMO this is the best gem for localization in ruby:

Unless I misunderstand the problem, that should do the trick for you.
You can define the YAML for multiple cultures, and just populate your
drop down from that.
