Make the code translatable

  • Import the gettext module
from gettext import gettext as _
  • Mark strings as translatable using _('String')
self._forward.set_tooltip(_('Forward'))

Generate the POT file for translators

  • You will need to generate it and push it in the repository every time you add strings. (XXX how do we automatize it)
./setup.py dist

Get your strings localized

Once that's done the people who care about localization can get the .pot files to translate and can contribute them back.
