For the moment, localization is managed for english and french languages. If you want to manage extra lozalisation, do the following:
- call this command to generate '.pot' file:
pybabel extract -F translations/settings_babel.cfg -o translations/i18n.pot .
- call one of the two commands to generate '.po' file:
pybabel init -i translations/i18n.pot -d translations -l <code> # (First time) pybabel update -i translations/i18n.pot -d translations # (Next times)
- Edit your '.po' file and write correct translation;
- call this command to generate '.mo' file:
pybabel compile -d translations
- Change your config.ini file to test the result;
