PyCharm 2018.3 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 manage.py utility.

Create a message file

  1. On the main menu, choose Tools | Run manage.py task, or press Ctrl+Alt+R.

  2. 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, 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.
