If the template is static, definitely the I18n is the right solution. But we have to provide the ability to the business team to customize those SEO templates

You can still do it with I18n if your business team needs to input those via an admin interface instead of a yaml file.

 I18n.backend.store_translations "en", name_with_reviews: { one: article.title_pattern_singular, other: article.title_pattern_plural }

and then I18n.t("name_with_reviews", count: 2, name: "Bob")

Of course if you don't want to support plural it's just

 I18n.backend.store_translations "en", name_with_reviews: article.title_pattern }

and I18n.t("name_with_reviews", name: "Bob")
