     1= Common causes for translation problems =
     2
     3Did you ever make a website that uses i18n, and diligently populated your messages file, only to find that some strings ''just don't get translated''? This page lists common causes for these kinds of problems.
     4
     5== Fuzzy ==
     6 
     7In your message file, try removing the "fuzzy" line.
     8
     9== ForeignKey without verbose_name parameter ==
     10
     11In your models, make sure that your ForeignKey fields get a verbose_name parameter. Like this:
     12
     13{{{
     14    parent = models.ForeignKey('self', verbose_name=_('Parent'))
     15}}}
     16
     17== Model methods without short_description attribute ==
     18
     19If Django is displaying the name of some model method, it should have a short_description attribute. Like this:
     20
     21{{{
     22    def website_context(self):
     23        return 'bla bla'
     24    website_context.short_description = _('Website context')
     25}}}
