Project description

Django Translation Sanitizer

Django Translation Sanitizer is a simple Django app to sanitize the output of makemessages command by disabling fuzzy matching and sorting it's output.


When one first create the *.po files with the original makemessages command everything seems nice -- Django make clean file that one can easily edit via text editor.

The actual "mess" comes after command has been running several times -- when Django tries to match previous translations of a changed original it often fails to do it correctly.

The thing is that it fails silently. It takes enormous amounts of time to find and fix the translation issues django had made.

So instead of changing the previous translations this module simply adds the new ones, leaving everything else untouched.

How to use it

  1. Install the package from PyPI like this:

    pip install django-translation-sanitizer
  2. Add "translation_sanitizer" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this

  3. That's it! Now makemessages command will produce clean, sorted and fuzzy-free output.
