Overview

Backend that chains multiple other backends and checks each of them when a translation needs to be looked up. This is useful when you want to use standard translations with a Simple backend but store custom application translations in a database or other backends.

To use the Chain backend instantiate it and set it to the I18n module. You can add chained backends through the initializer or backends accessor:

# preserves the existing Simple backend set to I18n.backend
I18n.backend = I18n::Backend::Chain.new(I18n::Backend::ActiveRecord.new, I18n.backend)

The implementation assumes that all backends added to the Chain implement a lookup method with the same API as Simple backend does.
