#8584 closed (fixed)

Corner case for get_language_for_request function in translation

As I understand the problem would show itself if the following, rather strange, conditions are met:

  • User language preference specify xx-YY
  • xx_YY l10n is supported by the Django installation (i.e. it's listed in settings.LANGUAGE)
  • The actual xx_YY/LC_MESSAGES/ is missing from the project, or the Django installation itself
  • xx is listed in in settings.LANGUAGE
  • xx/LC_MESSAGES/ file exists

In this scenario, Django won't use the xx translation.

PS: Also, pyflakes points out there is an unused import of settings in line 61 of the same file.
