I'm developing a car website with symfony featuring i18n an i10n.

I want to ad some values to my model that depends on the language and country of the user.

For example:

Power ( KW, HP, CV ....)
Engine size (Litres, C.C.)
Milleage ( kilometres, miles)

In my model:

    power:                    { type: integer, notnull: false}
    power_unit:               { type: integer(2), notnull: true } # CV, KW, HP...

I don't know if the best way to define this in the model is adding the "power_unit" field or make a adCar_Translation table and add there the power localized

I have been investigating also the sfCultureInfo and all de ICU stuff with the .dat files. I don't know if the best way to accomplish this is including those data extending the sfCultureInfo and creating custom dat files that extends the funcionality os sfCultureInfo. It seems very complex :-S

The other option is to make my own cultureManager and save those data in yml files for example and calling the manager when i need it:

YAML file example:
  power_unit:  HP
  milleage:    ML

  power_unite: CV
  milleage:    KM

what do you think?
