Localizing images


#1

Hi,
I’m using rails 2.2.2 and i18n for localization…
I want to know…how do I localize the text which are a part of
images…???
Currently I’m offering English and German as the language options…
I have made exact copies of all the images with german text…
How do I use these images…when locale=german???
Do I use ‘if’ statement each time and use english/german images
accordingly???
Or is there a better way???
Thank You…

I dont know ruby (i’m a newbie here) but generally I solve using a
naming composition on images like locale+imagename.jpg
or a better images/locale/imagename.jpg

or better again and a fully “RUBY WAY” just watch
this video

http://content.newrelic.com/videos/01-ScalingRails-Page-Responsiveness.mp4

on that video is explained how to use Content Delivery Network for
serving images and video from the right server (a germa server for germa
users , a french server for french users and so on)
