rails_translation_manager: Translating locale files

This document explains how to use Rails Translation Manager to create locale files.

Once you have installed the gem into your application, the expected usage is:

  1. export translations to a CSV file using:

    rake translation:export:all[target_directory]


    rake translation:export[target_directory,base_locale,target_locale]
  2. send the appropriate CSV file to a translator

  3. wait for translation to happen

  4. receive translation file back

  5. import the translation file using either:

    rake translation:import:all[source_directory]


    rake translation:import[locale,path]

    this will generate .yml files for each translation

  6. commit any changed .yml files

    git add config/locale
    git commit -m 'added new translations'
