django.utils.translation.check_for_language doesn't check in the app folders

When using the set_language view to set the language for the user, it doesn't work if the language file is not in settings.LOCALE_PATHS nor in django/conf/locale/.

Indeed set_language (https://github.com/django/django/blob/stable/1.11.x/django/views/i18n.py#L50) calls the function check_for_language. check_for_language will check if the language in parameter exists in the gettext catalog. However, check_for_language calls the function all_locale_paths (https://github.com/django/django/blob/stable/1.11.x/django/utils/translation/trans_real.py#L411) which doesn't contains the path of the apps.

I create a language that doesn't exist in the Django default language, I can't switch to this language because it cannot be found, it only exists in the locale directory inside my apps.
