Page translation plugin for Wagtail

Project Description

A plugin for Wagtail that provides page translations.


Install using pip:

$ pip install wagtailtranslations

Add it to your INSTALLED_APPS:

    # ...
    # ...

It works with Wagtail 1.7 and upwards.

Quick start

Define a TranslationIndex model:

from wagtailtranslations.models import AbstractTranslationIndexPage

class TranslationHomePage(AbstractTranslationIndexPage):
    subpage_types = ['ContentPage']

Use this as your site root page. Each language your site supports should exist as a separate page tree underneath this index page. The English home page should have a slug “en”, for a URL of /en/; while the French home page should have a slug “fr”, for a URL of /fr/.

Define a translated model:

from wagtail.wagtailadmin.edit_handlers import FieldPanel
from wagtail.wagtailcore.fields import RichTextField
from wagtail.wagtailcore.models import Page
from wagtailtranslations.models import TranslatedPage

class ContentPage(TranslatedPage, Page):
    body = RichTextField()

    content_panels = Page.content_panels + [

Enable some languages in the Wagtail admin → Settings → Languages, for example English and French.

Create a new ContentPage for English. On the ‘Translations’ tab, select English for the language, and leave the ‘Translation of …’ field blank.

Create another new ContentPage for French. On the ‘Translations’ tab, select French for the language, and select the English page you just created in the ‘Translation of …’ field.

$ source venv/bin/activate

$ export DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE=tests.settings
$ django-admin migrate
$ django-admin createsuperuser
$ django-admin runserver
