Customizing Rails error messages for models and attributes

Rails has generic error messages you can define in your locale .yml files. You may override those application-wide error messages using model or attribute scope like this:

en: activerecord: errors: messages: invalid: is invalid # used for any invalid attribute in the application models: car: invalid: does not work # used for invalid car attributes attributes: driver: invalid: not allowed to drive # used if the car's driver attribute is invalid
