#3456 ✓stale

starting a translation with an interpolation without quotations provokes error

Reported by Florent2 | November 3rd, 2009 @ 08:43 PM

In a YAML translation file the translation

time_ago: {{duration}} ago

provokes an error: "syntax error" raised during the YAML file parsing


time_ago: ago {{duration}}


time_ago: '{{duration}} ago'


time_ago: "{{duration}} ago"

do not

Tested with Rails 2.3.4

This is an edge case, maybe just mentioning it in the doc is enough if it is hard to fix.
