Could anyone please check my steps to enable reviewboard to display
other language?
It doesn't work.
Thank you in advanced.

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
python 2.7
ReviewBoard: 1.6.6
Installed by easy_install
English language show well.
System default locale: zh_CN.UTF-8

My steps to enable it to show zh_CN language:
1. Modify following places in "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/
  (1) LANGUAGE_CODE = 'zh_CN'
  (2) USE_I18N = True
       LANGUAGES = (
         ('zh', _('Chinese')),
2. Compile by a python script:
import py_compile


3. Under /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ReviewBoard-1.6.6-
py2.7.egg/reviewboard ,run:
mkdir -p locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES/ makemessages -l zh_CN

Now we got django.po.

4. Fill out locale/zh_CN/LC_MESSAGES/django.po with my Chinese

5. Under /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ReviewBoard-1.6.6-
py2.7.egg/reviewboard ,run: compilemessages -l zh_CN

Now we got

6. Restart apatch2:
apachectl  -k restart

7. Refresh ReviewBoard portal.

Unfortunately, Nothing happened :(

Question 1:
1. Could you please point me what should I do with above steps?

2. I tried copying /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/Sphinx-1.1.3-
Then restart apache, now it works partly
But after I refresh portal again, it went back to English....
Do you know why?

Thank you very much ~~
