A django model & fixture containing common languages and culture codes
django-languages-plus provides models and fixtures for working with both common languages and ‘culture codes’ or locale codes, like pt-BR.
Note that this is only a small (but popular) subset of all living languages, and is not even a comprehensive set of the ISO 639 languages. It does however include the endonym/autonym/exonym.
The Language model contains all ISO 639-1 languages and related information from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes
The model provides the following fields (original wikipedia.org column name in parentheses).
- name_en (Language name (in english))
- name_native (Native name)
- iso_639_1 (639-1)
- iso_639_2T = (639-2T)
- iso_639_2B = (639-2B)
- iso_639_3 = (639-3)
- iso_639_6 = (639-6)
- name_en = models
- name_native = mo
- name_other = mod
- family = models.
pip install django-languages-plus
Add languages_plus to your INSTALLED_APPS
Sync your fixtures:
python manage.py syncdb
In your code use:
from languages_plus.models import Language lang = Lanuage.objects.get(iso_639_1='en')
Integrating with django-countries-plus
If you also have django-countries-plus(https://pypi.python.org/pypi/django-countries-plus) installed then you can run the following command once to associate the two datasets and generate a list of culture codes (pt_BR for example):
from languages_plus.utils import associate_countries_and_languages associate_countries_and_languages()
Should work on most versions of Django, however if you are using Django 1.7, tests will fail unless you are using Django 1.7.2 or higher due to a bug in earlier versions.
