I18n, look up a translation with the default locale when it's missed with another specific locale

Reported by calavera | May 13th, 2009 @ 10:20 PM

This feature has already been validated, revised and voted in the Rails tracker


've added an I18n option to allow to look up a translation with the default locale when it's missed with another specific locale.

This is a useful option if you don't want your page will crash when misses a translation and you don't want to use the default option in each translation. It's inspired by the gettext behaviour.

For example, I have this code in an initializer:

  I18n.use_default_locale_on_missing_translation = true
  I18n.default_locale = :en

And two translation files, en.yml and es.yml:


hello: 'hello'
hello_world: 'hello world'

hello_world: 'hola mundo'</code>

When I execute this code:

  I18n.t :hello, :locale => :es

Rails returns hello instead of send an error

    +1 since it is optional and false by default. Since that'll mean existing functionality works as expected, is there any reason stopping this change?
