The Django Tutorial part 2 Polls Admin templates example is confusing. Users are told to change the text in their copy of admin/base_site.html.

There is no plain text in that template, only tags. All text items are in %-TRANS tags, which I assume act like GNU gettext() translations.

I found the Django templates instructions, and commented-out the %-TRANS tags. Then, I wrote plain text in place of them.

Please, describe how to work with the templates in more detail.

I'm not sure what you're looking at - my base_site.html looks like this:

{% extends "admin/base.html" %}
{% load i18n %}

{% block title %}{{ title|escape }} | {% trans 'Django site admin' %}{% endblock %}

{% block branding %}
<h1 id="site-name">{% trans 'Django administration' %}</h1>
{% endblock %}

{% block nav-global %}{% endblock %}

where it should be fairly obvious that you want to modify the Django site admin and Django administration parts
