Fallback and ActiveRecord backends together

Hi all,

I’m trying to use the Fallback and ActiveRecord backends together. I
created a initializer that has:

I18n.backend = I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord.new
I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord.send(:include, I18n::Backend::Fallbacks)

but whenever a validation message needs to be translated i get this

translation data {:“translation missing: de, i18n, plural, keys”=>nil}
can not be used with :count => 1

has anyone been successful in combining both backends?


Helo Pietro,

I suffered from the same problem and found the solution: extending the
backend instance instead of including into the class.
Here the deciding part of my initializer:

I18n.backend = I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord.new

(And I have no idea why that works and not the other.)

Best Regards,
