A Django application that allow you to specify the language of a page in the URL.

Project description

The localeurl Django application allows you to specify the language of a page in the URL.

Suppose you have a Django website in multiple languages. Using localeurl, without modifying your URLconfs, you can have URLs like this: http://www.example.com/nl/company/profile. Any URLs without a language prefix will be redirected to add the prefix for the default language (or, optionally, the language preferred in the user’s browser settings).

Some reasons for using localeurl:

  • Search engines will index all languages.
  • Every page should have a unique URL. If you feel that different languages means different pages, then each language should get its own unique URL.
  • If you don’t set the language via the URL, setting the language for the website should be done using a POST request (because it influences subsequent page views, see Django ticket #3651). You might prefer a simple link for changing the language, and localeurl allows this.

You can install localeurl with pip:

pip install django-localeurl

or install the in-development version:

pip install django-localeurl==dev

See the full documentation.
