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 manage.py utility.
Create a message file
On the main menu, choose, or press N/A.
- In the manage.py task window, enter
makemessages --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:
If there are no such strings, only an empty directory structure is created.
