Once you've tagged your strings for later translation, you need to write (or
obtain) the language translations themselves. Here's how that works.
+.. admonition:: Locale restrictions
+ Django does support localising your application into a locale for which
+ Django itself has not been translated -- it will ignore your translation
+ files. If you were to try this and Django supported it, you would
+ inevitably see a mixture of translated strings (from your application) and
+ English strings (from Django itself). If you are wanting to support a
+ locale for your application that is not already part of Django, you will
+ need to make at least a minimal translation of the Django core.
