  6. Run sync_translation_fields and update_translation_fields commands (from modeltranslation app)

  7. If you want to use Redactor WYSIWYG editor (see settings below), you need to add 'flatpages_i18n.urls' to your

            url(r'^', include('flatpages_i18n.urls')),


To get all flatpages:

In your HTML template:

{% load i18n flatpages_i18n %}

    {% for flatpage in flatpages_i18n %}
        <li><a href="/{{ LANGUAGE_CODE }}{{ flatpage.url }}">{{ flatpage.title }}</a></li>
    {% endfor %}

To get flatpage by its PK:

{% get_flatpage_i18n 123 as my_flatpage %}
{{ my_flatpage.content }}
