Globalize and views

This seems like it should be pretty obvious but I haven’t found an
answer anywhere (the Rails Recipes book even says “translating views
is really easy…” and then drops the subject). So, as a result I
have a bunch of questions about it:

  • how do I use the Globalize plugin to translate text in views?
  • what’s the best way to put the text into the database? (or even
    just “how?”)
  • are there good examples online? Suggestions?

Thanks kindly,
