We’ve all been there – Symfony and I18n do play well together – it’s got XLIFF for interface translation which works almost out-of-the-box, it’s got localization features for things like numbers, currencies and many others. It also has internationalization features that work with database tables.
Unfortunately, all is well until you stray from the guidelines presented in the Symfony book. The norm in Symfony is to write the database definition withing the
schema.yml file. That’s okay… it’s compact, concise and verbose enough to be understood within the context of Symfony nomenclature. But when you’re dealing with 25+ tables that need accompanying I18n tables, things could get messy, nomenclature or not.
