- Django does not support localizing your application into a locale for which
- Django itself has not been translated. In this case, 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 want to support a locale
- for your application that is not already part of Django, you'll need to make
- at least a minimal translation of the Django core.
- A good starting point is to copy the Django English ``.po`` file and to
- translate at least some :term:`translation strings <translation string>`.
