Translation inside models?


#1

Hey people,

I’m having a problem translating messages inside a model, e.g. I used to
have it like this:

validates_uniqueness_of :username, :message => “Username in use already”

which worked fine but now I wanna internationalize my application and
thought it’d work like everywhere else in my application and I did
following:

validates_uniqueness_of :username, :message => (t :username_in_use)

and I get: method_missing': undefined methodt’

Is it not possible to translate text inside a model? If it is… how do
I do it the right way?

Inside a model is used like this:

I18n.t(:username_in_use)

You can also put it in the translation yml like this:

es:
activerecord:
errors:
messages:
taken: “ya está en uso”

There are more examples in:

Thank you! Especially for remdinding me of the ability to override the
default messages :slight_smile:
