Translates Django models using a registration approach.



The modeltranslation application can be used to translate dynamic content of existing Django models to an arbitrary number of languages without having to change the original model classes. It uses a registration approach (comparable to Django's admin app) to be able to add translations to existing or new projects and is fully integrated into the Django admin backend.

The advantage of a registration approach is the ability to add translations to models on a per-app basis. You can use the same app in different projects, may they use translations or not, and you never have to touch the original model class.


  • Add translations without changing existing models
  • Fast, because translation fields are stored in the same table
  • Supports inherited models
  • Django admin support
