IntelliJ IDEA 2018.2 Help

Creating Message Files

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.
