-Internationalization of localflavor
-Localflavor has its own catalog of translations, in the directory
-``django/contrib/localflavor/locale``, and it's not loaded automatically like
-Django's general catalog in ``django/conf/locale``. If you want localflavor's
-texts to be translated, like form fields error messages, you must include

+Internationalization of localflavors
+To activate translations for a newly-created ``localflavor`` application, you
+must include the application's name (e.g. ``django_localflavor_jp``) in the
+:setting:`INSTALLED_APPS` setting, so the internationalization system can find
+the catalog, as explained in :ref:`how-django-discovers-translations`.
+If you're still using the legacy ``localflavor`` application, you must include
+:mod:`django.contrib.localflavor` in :setting:`INSTALLED_APPS` (that will
+raise a ``DeprecationWarning``).
