PyCharm 5.0 Help

Creating Message Files

PyCharm stores locales in the language-related subdirectories of the locale directory. For creating locales, run the makemessages task of the utility.

To create a message file

  1. On the main menu, choose Tools | Run task, or press N/A.
  2. In the Enter task name dialog box, select makemessages, and press Shift+Enter.
  3. In the makemessages dialog box that opens, type -l <locale name >:

    Repeat this step for each locale you want to create.

    If there are strings marked for localization, PyCharm will produce a directory and django.po file for each locale:


    If there are no such strings, only an empty directory structure is created.
