The modeltranslation application is used to translate dynamic content of existing Django models to an arbitrary number of languages without having to change the original model classes. It uses a registration approach (comparable to Django’s admin app) to be able to add translations to existing or new projects and is fully integrated into the Django admin backend.

The advantage of a registration approach is the ability to add translations to models on a per-app basis. You can use the same app in different projects, may they use translations or not, and you never have to touch the original model class.


  • Add translations without changing existing models or views

  • Translation fields are stored in the same table (no expensive joins)

  • Supports inherited models (abstract and multi-table inheritance)

  • Handle more than just text fields

  • Django admin integration

  • Flexible fallbacks, auto-population and more!
