Issue #826 resolved

Unable to get localization mechanism running

created an issue

This refers to the localization mechanism described in (new as of Sphinx 1.1.).

Tested on Win7, WinXP and the latest Ubuntu. I tried to compile the English version of a German project by following the manual (rst -> pot -> po -> mo, entering locale_dirs in, and it didn't work. The resulting HTML files always show the German original text, only the GUI is English as expected.

Command line used was: sphinx-build –b html –Dlanguage=en c:\mini-doc_issue c:\mini-doc_issue\html_en

Adding my little test project here which is German (original, rst) with English translations (mo in locale\en\LC_MESSAGE).

Pointers to what I might do wrong very appreciated. Thanks for the good Sphinx work :)

    Way to go *bonks head* In my local tests with larger projects, the path was right and the problem seems to be a different one. Only in my small demo, I used the wrong path and thus got misled. Thanks for the correction, the demo project works now. (And the bigger problem still remains, dangit :)

    Vielen Dank.
