l(*args)
Alias for: localize
localize(*args)

Delegates to I18n.localize. Also aliased as l.

t(key, options = {})
Alias for: translate
translate(key, options = {})

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.

Also aliased as: t
# File actionpack/lib/abstract_controller/translation.rb, line 11
def translate(key, options = {})
  if key.to_s.first == '.'
    path = controller_path.tr('/', '.')
    defaults = [:"#{path}#{key}"]
    defaults << options[:default] if options[:default]
    options[:default] = defaults
    key = "#{path}.#{action_name}#{key}"
  end
  I18n.translate(key, options)
