def localize(*args)
  I18n.localize(*args)
end

#translate(key, options = {}) ⇒ Object Also known as: t

Delegates to I18n.translate. Also aliased as t.

When the given key starts with a period, it will be scoped by the current controller and action. So if you call translate(".foo") from PeopleController#index, it will convert the call to I18n.translate("people.index.foo"). This makes it less repetitive to translate many keys within the same controller / action and gives you a simple framework for scoping them consistently.
