#26319 closed Bug (fixed)

British English can't be returned from the javascript_catalog

We have translations for British English (Australian English too!) and they aren't displayed in javascript based segments of our Django application.

Digging into the problem I believe the issue is in Django. Specifically this line:

Ultimately makes every English variant fall back to plain "en" at

I suggest the fix is to check for equality over starts with at line 212.

Do you plan to submit a tested patch? It doesn't seem that reproducing the issue will be very easy for me given the sparse details you provided so far and my lack of translation expertise.

I don't currently plan to submit such a patch. I lack the corporate approval to contribute to Django.

I shared my idea with one of my co-contributors from the OpenStack Horizon project, he tried it out and it apparently doesn't pass tests.

I'll try to sort out if I can create a small sample that will fail. Would that be helpful?

Yes, if you can submit it as a unit test in view_tests/tests/ even better.

A related ticket is #26328 -- can you say if the changes proposed there might solve your issue? (There should be a pull request soon). Maybe you can dialog with that ticket author a bit.
