Globalize : how to detect if a translated text is available

Hi all,

I was wondering how one can detect if a translated text is available
when using the globalize plugin.
If this is possible , then I would like to make the following :

For example, in your view you have :
<[email protected] { | item | %>

Now what I would like to happen is , when the menu item has no
translation available , and when a admin is logged in (by checking
the session vars) it shows a little icon which will be clickable to
insert the translation of that item.

Please share your thoughts on this,

Gerard de Brieder.

Hi all,

Just sharing my findings in the mean while…

I did find out that the object will have an attributed called
<field_name>_not_base so you could make a condition like :
<%="(Translated)" if @text.body_not_base rescue “(Translation not

Current progress :
I made an helper like this :

def translate(object,attribute)
unless object.nil?
unless Locale.base?
if object.send("#{attribute}_not_base")
ret+="(No translation available)
ret=“Text not available”.t
return ret

Which works quite well, ofcourse i can no extent it when the
translation is not avaiable to make the controls to change it…
I would appreciate it if someone could show me how to beautify the
piece of code above…
