What are the steps to switch to a language other than 'en'?
I've tried setting LANGUAGE_CODE = "es" or to anything other than "en" and it didn't work.
Actually, most of the spanish translation strings are simply commented out in the spanish
.po catalogue. One example is the string "badges", visible in the top navigation menu:
#~ msgid "badges" #~ msgstr "medallas"
The comment format is
#~, which means the strings are ignored because they are obsolete. Why they are obsolete I don't know, but a simple fix is to run
[PROJECT_ROOT/apps/askbot/] PROJECT_ROOT/manage.py jinja2_makemessages --no-wrap -l es -e html,py,txt
That is, run that command from the askbot app subdirectory (not from
That will un-obsolete the
es askbot strings and make them visible/translatable from rosetta.
