The translator plugin provides automatic translation of the templates using Gettext, Fast-Gettext or Rails I18n. Static text in the template is replaced by the translated version.


h1 Welcome to #{url}!

Gettext translates the string from english to german where interpolations are replaced by %1, %2, ...

"Welcome to %1!" -> "Willkommen auf %1!"

and renders as

<h1>Willkommen auf!</h1>
