This package provides components for use with Zope 3 and Zope 2 + Five that implement both ITranslationDomain and ILanguageAvailability as well as supporting the recording of untranslated msgids.

This means that, not only do the components support the interface require to provide messages to Zope 3's i18n framework, they can also be used to generate a list of available languages using code similar to the following:


  from zope.component import getUtility
  from zope.i18n.interfaces import ILanguageAvailability
  from zope.i18n.locales import locales, LoadLocaleError

  domain = 'myproject'

  def getLanguages(self):
    options = getUtility(ILanguageAvailability,
                         domain).getAvailableLanguages()
    options.sort()
    result = []
    for option in options:
        lang = option[0]
        try:
            locale = locales.getLocale(lang)
        except LoadLocaleError:
            # probably not a real locale
            continue
        result.append(
            {'code':lang,
             'name':locale.displayNames.languages[lang],
            )
    return result

Sample ZCML for configuration could be:

    <configure xmlns="http://namespaces.zope.org/zope";
           xmlns:i18n="http://namespaces.simplistix.co.uk/translations";>

    <!-- make the sx.translations' registerTranslations directive
         available -->
    <include package="sx.translations" file="meta.zcml" />

    <!-- register our locales using sx.translations -->
    <i18n:registerTranslations locales="../locales"
                               missing="../locales/myproj.pot"
                               encoding="utf-8"/>

    </configure>

I'm happy to contribute this code to the Zope 3 core if people can tell me where and how to do so...

cheers,

Chris
