Template paths from
settings.TEMPLATE_DIRS are not always (often not?) located within the Python project directory. These directories contain site-wide templates that may contain i18n strings that should be translated. It makes sense to locate the message catalogs for these string with the templates. I propose the following additional convention for translations:
- Look for a
localedirectory in every path in
settings.TEMPLATE_DIRS. If Django finds a translation, the translation will be installed.
This set-up is already possible by setting
settings.LOCALE_PATHS, but this ticket is about proposing a new convention for templates.
If this ticket is accepted I am willing to do the patch.
