Internationalization

Per-request internationalization is enabled by default for English and Estonian languages. Client requests will respect the Accept-Language.

Here are the guidelines for specifying translation strings:

  • Build a proper sentence: start with a capital letter, end with a period.

Right: _('Deletion was scheduled.')

Wrong: _('deletion was scheduled')

  • Use named-string interpolation instead of positional interpolation if message has several parameters.

Right: _('Operation was successfully scheduled for %(count)d instances: %(names)s.')

Wrong: _('Operation was successfully scheduled for %s instances: %s.')

  • help_text, verbose_name, exception message and response message should be marked, but don't mark message template for event or alert logger.
