Tools for WebTranslateIt: Translate your Ruby on Rails strings in context with i18n_viz

Posted by Edouard on May 1, 2013

Are you translating a Ruby on Rails application? Would you like to give your translations more context to the translations to your translators?

i18n_viz is a great rubygem for Ruby on Rails projects developed by Jakob Hilden from Railslove.

What does it do?

When translating a list of strings in a YAML files it can be rather difficult for translators to understand the meaning of a sentence, because of the lack of context.

i18n_viz is a rubygem that lets your browse your own Rails application and visualize and edit your strings in a ruby on rails project. Think of it as a reversed lookup for translations.

i18n_viz highlights your app’s translatable text and adds a tooltip containing the translation key which links to the translation key in your favourite online translation tool.

If you configure an online translation software like WebTranslateIt the tooltip becomes clickable and links directly to the segment on WebTranslateIt.com, where you can edit it.

Installation

The gem is well documented, so installing it is just a matter of following the instructions.

web_translate_it rubygem v2.1.3 released

Posted by Edouard on April 25, 2013

I released a new version of the web_translate_it gem, the open-source synchronization tool for Web Translate It.

Fixes

This new version fixes an issue installing the gem with JRuby and rubygems 2.0.3.

Improvements

This new version improves the error message displayed when a file is not available for push. A file isn’t available for push (the API returns the HTTP status code 503 when an import is already in progress for that file.

This locking mechanism prevents a file from being imported twice at the same time, which would cause synchronization problems on a project.

wti error message

This new version also adds the ability to initialize a project with this command in one line: wti init <api_token>, and improves error handling when running a wti command outside of a directory containing a WebTranslateIt configuration file.
