Making the Django ORM Multilingual

A session at DjangoCon US 2011

Wednesday 7th September, 2011

2:20pm to 3:00pm

Why does Django make it hard to have translated database contents? And what solutions are there to make it easier? And how can Django make multilingual database contents less of a pain?

Multilingual database contents are not an easy thing to accomplish in Django. While there are many projects out there helping you with this, they all have their good and bad sides. The reason for this is that Django does not really help a lot in this area. There are things though, Django could do to make this easier and for some use cases, the existing solutions are actually good enough. I would like to share my knowledge and experience in this field, having developed almost exclusively multilingual websites and having developed two projects to make this easier in Django.
