What about translations - are there any planned? Could I start adding a German one? (using ugettext of course)


jsoa commented Aug 31, 2012

That would be more than welcome!

I have forked your project and I have started to work on a German translation - where I already have two specific questions:

  1. In German it is possible to differentiate "you" (the pronoun) in formal and informal context (either "du" or "Sie"). Which one should I use?
  2. There are verbose names which include capital letters (e.g.
    relation_type = models.CharField(_("Relation Type"),
    ). This is against the django convention (see https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/db/models/#verbose-field-names ). May I change them to lower case?

  1. yes. meaning, we'll trust your judgement
  2. yes.

EDIT: I think the problem deserves a new issue, so I opened #55.

Languages other than German should probably have individual issues.
