Django URL internationalization

This Django pluggable makes it possible to translate URL patterns by using gettext. As well it contains a custom patterns function for prefixing URLs with the active language-code (eg: /en/news/, /nl/nieuws/) and a middleware to activate the language code in the prefix (for incoming request).


from django.conf.urls.defaults import patterns, include, url
from django.utils.translation import ugettext_lazy as _

from i18nurls.defaults import locale_prefixed_patterns

patterns = locale_prefixed_patterns('',
    url(_(r'^users/register/$', 'your.view', name='account-register')),

# In your shell, after updating your translations (with makemessages / compilemessages)
>>> activate('nl')
>>> reverse('account-register')

>>> activate('nl')
>>> reverse('account-register')


  • Add i18nurls to your settings.INSTALLED_APPS
  • Add i18nurls.middleware.LocaleMiddleware to your settings.MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES. Note: This middleware replaces the default Django LocaleMiddleware.
