I18n on model attributes

Hi, I have to set those language flags on my website, and depending on
which one was selected it should show the pages in specific languages.
Problem is that this translation is also needed for the model
attributes.

How should I do that?

Just save many attributes (one for each language) for each attribute I
currently have and then set a lot of if’s in my html?

Thank you,
Rodrigo

You need a config/locales/es.something.yml file that looks like:

es:
[…]
activerecord:
models:
user: Usuario
attributes:
user:
name: Nombre
[…]

This way you’ll have your attribute and models names translated when
you use.
Remember to have the same strings translated for, at least, :en and to
keep an eye on spaces and indents when editing .yml files

form_for :user … do |f|
f.label :name

Regards.

Hi Rodrigo,

There are tools available for this sort of thing, but it seems like you
need a bit of orientation first. Check out this guide:

http://guides.rubyonrails.org/i18n.html

For further questions after that, I recommend this group:

Best of luck,

You should have a look at the Rails Internationalization Guide,
especially the part about localizing Active Model attributes.
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/i18n.html#translations-for-active-record-models

Simply set the local for the I18n API:
I18n.locale = :de

and translate all the active model attributes:

en:
activerecord:
models:
user: Dude
attributes:
user:
login: “Handle”
# will translate User attribute “login” as “Handle”

Hope that helps!

I meant translation of the content of those attributes, not the name of
the
attributes

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Globalize gem seems to be what you need:
