Language switch for Django

Project description

Language switch for Django.


You can install django-lang-switch from PyPi:

$ pip install django-lang-switch


You need to add django_lang_switch.apps.DjangoLangSwitchConfig into your INSTALLED_APPS setting. If you want to add enable language switch in django admin site, you have to add it before django.contrib.admin. Otherwise, you need to put django.contrib.admin first. If you don’t use django admin site, the order does not matter.

If you tweaked the admin/base_site.html template yourself, put this application after yours and use the template tag as described below.

You also need to include django-lang-switch urls to your ROOT_URLCONF. Example:

from django.urls import include, path

urlpatterns = [
    path('django_lang_switch/', include('django_lang_switch.urls')),

You can of course change the path to suit your needs.


If you just want to add language switch to django admin site, add this application to your INSTALLED_APPS as described above and you are done.

If you want to use the same switch elsewhere, add template tage lang_switch_dropdown to your template. Don’t forget to load lang_switch tag collection to your template. Example:

{% extends myapp/base_site.html %}
{% load lang_switch %}
<div id="header">
    Welcome to MyApp!
    <div class="right">
        {% lang_switch_dropdown %}


Language switch in django admin site is already styled to fit the default design. If you want to style the lang switch yourselves, you may set css for the div.lang-switch element and its descendants.
