Quick Start - Django

Localize your django app easily with Localazy CLI.

Django generates PO files that are fully supported by Localazy. Upload them and manage your translations easily. Download translated files back.

1. Install Localazy CLI for your operating system.

2. Create a configuration file localazy.json in the root of your project. You can start with our sample:

{

  "writeKey": "your-write-key",
  "readKey": "your-read-key",
  
  "upload": {  
    "type": "pot",
    "files": "translations/strings.po"         
  },
  
  "download": {
    "files": "translations/${lang}.po"
  }
  
}

3. Upload the source strings with localazy upload whenever you change them.

4. Download translated files with localazy download before building your app.


From the source code, django generates PO file without translations which is technically POT file. Therefore the POT type above. Learn more details about our PO/POT file support.

You can upload all your existing translations too! Learn more about it.
