I see, that Rails is quite english-centric. I am developing some webs,
that are not primarily in English. I have a few questions:
- besides turning of plurals, what should I take care? How to use utf-8
for all data and converting it from local charsets to utf-8?
- how do I make my page multilingual (i.e. adding english support
later)? Is there something like gettext support? Is there a multilingual
scaffold support? (So I’ll have a web interface where I can translate
all the messages used in application).
- Is there some web/wiki page talking about internationalization issues
in Rails? Should we start one?
One more question not about internationalization: is there some BIRT
(Business Intelligence and Reporting Tool) integration? Or preferable
way to make reports (PDF, HTML, …) from my existing model?
