django.contrib.localflavor has its own catalog of translations, but it's not loaded automatically like the main django catalog in
django.contrib.localflavor must be added to
INSTALLED_APPS for the catalog to be loaded.
This behaviour should be documented in the localflavor documentation, because localflavor's functionality (mainly form fields) doesn't require the app to be in
INSTALLED_APPS. In addition, users may expect these translations to be automatically available, being localflavor a part of Django.
I include a patch for
docs/ref/contrib/localflavor.txt explaining this.
