Look for Rails i18n helpers, they do what you're looking for.
No that's not the problem, in fact I'am using I18n. But that only
works for translating /localizing your data from the database.
But now I'm trying to Post data to the database. So for instance, if I
would have a form with a text field: date_attended (<%=
f.text_field :date_attended%> and would post the following 'SPANISH'
date to the database: 10 Abril 2009 (-> which is April 10, 2009 in
English) The database won't understand this.
So therefore I need to change this file: 1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/date/
format.rb, because when I do that it works, but I want to do it via my
rails app. I want to overwrite it there, but have no idea how. I was
also thinking of maybe translating the months in the model itself, so
that the database understands which month I'm talking about. But also
I have no idea how to implement this in my code. I need (code)samples/
guidance, any suggestion is welcome.
