IntelliJ IDEA 2017.2 Help

Creating Message Files

This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.

The following is only valid when Python Plugin is installed and enabled!

IntelliJ IDEA 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 task window, enter makemessages, type --locale <locale name > and press Enter.

    Repeat this step for each locale you want to create.

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

    py localeFolders

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