The way xgettext (the engine used by makemessages) generates the translation files is by scanning the text of source files, looking for specific function calls, and picking their arguments with a simple text transformation. So, for the key name to somehow be identified, it must be a parameter in a function call (not the target of assignment), and the form to be translated must be the form that's in the source -- no changing capitalization, or underscores-to-spaces, or anything of the sort. So, the best we could do to minimize repetitions would create Choice classes looking like class SchoolYear(Choices): choice('Freshman', 'FR') choice('Junior', 'JR') where the choice() calls add members to the class, and the name of the member is generated by some transformation over the label. That, IMO, would be unacceptably unpythonic.
