Edit localization files from web

I’m developing backend for mobile apps on Rails.


  • server send json with specific locale when user select region and language from mobile app
  • server have web interface for admins
  • admins can change locale from web interface for specific region
  • server application also have i18n in web interface
  • admins can add new i18n locale from web interface

The questions are:

  1. Can Rails handle adding new i18n locale from web interface on the fly? Without restarting the server
  2. Where is better to store locales for mobile apps? I think raw json files on the server is a bad choice. I’m inclined to store it in DB and then convert to json and send to mobile app.

Source: json
