Hi How to localize the different methods in e.g. Date ? Tries to use Date.parse(str) with str in any language. I have a fix for my current problem, where str is a swedish date of the form 12 MAJ 1983; Date.parse(str.gsub('MAJ','MAY'), but is there a more generic solution? How to use the different localzed date format as e.g date.abbr_month_names ? Tried I18n.l(Date.today) and I18n.l(Date.today.strftime("%d %b %Y")) and I18n.l(y.wday).to_s and I18n.l(y).wday but without any success !! The problem is that I do not understand this part of I18n and the guides give no information about the more complex use of localize? Would appreciate any help

Hi Hans, you could use my delocalize plugin for that: http://github.com/clemens/delocalize. - Clemens On Aug 25, 2010, at 9:59 AM, Hans Marmolin wrote: > I18n.l(Date.today.strftime("%d %b %Y")) and > Phone: +46708371202 > To unsubscribe from this group, send email to email@example.com. > For more options, visit this group at http://groups.google.com/group/rails-i18n?hl=en. > Clemens Kofler http://www.railway.at firstname.lastname@example.org railway - welcome aboard!

For the second question: You pass the :format parameter, like this: I18n.l(Date.today, :format => :long) The default available formats are :default, :short and :long but you can add more to your locale file: http://github.com/svenfuchs/rails-i18n/blob/master...

Thanks Clemens It solved all my problems! Just what I needed. However the plugin should be listed in the i18n guide Next I need a plugin for inverse translations if existing ? There is some suggestions in earlier discussion of this problem, but as Sven remarked -- these solutions are really hacks Any news regarding this problem ____________________________________________ Hans Marmolin St: Larsgatan 50, 58224 Linköping, Sweden Phone: +46708371202 25 aug 2010 kl. 10.47 skrev Clemens Kofler:

Hi MejÃa Â¨ Thanks for the suggestions. I now think that I understand this area better Regarding Mitchell question A also use separate html files for longer texts (more than one sentence) ____________________________________________ Hans Marmolin St: Larsgatan 50, 58224 LinkÃ¶ping, Sweden Phone: +46708371202 25 aug 2010 kl. 17.48 skrev AndrÃ©s MejÃa:
