Django app name translation in admin

This application allows translation of application names in the admin interface.

Works with Django 1.3.x (for Django 1.4.x, use next branch).


Using pip, you can install from the git repo.

For Django 1.4.x (using next branch):

pip install git+git://

Previous versions (using master branch):

pip install git+git://

Configuration and usage

  1. Put app_name_translation_in_admin into your INSTALLED_APPS before django.contrib.admin:

  2. Define the app names and mark them for translations. Use title cased app name.

from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

_(u'Auth') # for auth app_name
_(u'User_Addresses') # for user_addresses app_name
