#cleanse_localized_field_names(name) ⇒ Field

Removes the _translations from the given field name. This is done only when there doesn't already exist a field name or relation with the same name (i.e. with the _translations suffix). This check for an existing field is done recursively

Parameters:

  • name (String | Symbol)

    The name of the field to cleanse.

Returns:

  • (Field)
