Best way to localize Django apps

The first step is to extract the text to translate into language files. This process is called internationalization. The built-in libraries can be used to extract the text to translate into Gettext PO files.

Once you have internationalized your Django app, use a translation software localization tool such as WebTranslateIt to manage your localization workflow.

It is easy to translate a Django app with WebTranslateIt. Create a project, upload your source language file in the File Manager and translate it on the Translation Interface.

The tools included in WebTranslateIt, such as Batch Operations, the Translation Memory or Machine Translation can help you translate that file automatically, faster and cost effectively.
