A simple Django app to automatically translate the pot (`.po`) files generated by django's makemessages command using google translate.

Project description

A simple Django app to automatically translate the pot (.po) files generated by django’s makemessages command using google translate.

Installation:

pip install dj-translate

Add 'autotranslate' to your INSTALLED_APPS setting.

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'autotranslate',
)

Quickstart:

python manage.py makemessages --no-wrap --no-location --no-obsolete

python manage.py translate_messages

The command finds all the generated pot (.po) files under the locale paths (LOCALE_PATHS) specified in django project settings, and translates them automatically.

Options:

  1. -f, --set-fuzzy: Set the ‘fuzzy’ flag on autotranslated entries
  2. -l, --locale 'locale': Only translate the specified locales
  3. -u, --untranslated: Only translate the untranslated messages
python manage.py translate_messages -l 'de' -l 'es'

Settings:

  1. Use a google translation - Web scrapper (Not recomm):
AUTOTRANSLATE_TRANSLATOR_SERVICE = 'autotranslate.services.GoSlateTranslatorService'
  1. Use a Google API based Translation Service:
# default: 'autotranslate.services.GoSlateTranslatorService'
# pip install google-api-python-client
AUTOTRANSLATE_TRANSLATOR_SERVICE = 'autotranslate.services.GoogleAPITranslatorService'
GOOGLE_TRANSLATE_KEY = '<google-api-key>'

Edit translation strings:

Add an URL entry to your project’s urls.py, for example:

from django.conf import settings

if 'autotranslate' in settings.INSTALLED_APPS:
    urlpatterns += [
        url(r'^autotranslate/', include('autotranslate.urls')),
    ]

Login as admin:

Nevigate to : http://127.0.0.1:8000/autotranslate
