Using Tolk with Google Translate

by tokumine

I love DHH’s Tolk. For those that don’t know, it’s a rails engine that makes translating your base locale in your Rails app really easy . While I was translating, I was getting bored with doing simple things like translating the days of the week and so on, and sometimes needed help with more complex sentences. This is my fork of Tolk that autotranslates your translation string with google translate to give you a sensible starting point rather than a white box.

It’s on github: http://github.com/tokumine/tolk/
