There where never .mo files in z3c.form's sdist. (I think because .mo file are 
compiled files like .pyc files which are not included as well.)

To get the .mo files compiled at runtime you need the following variables in 

os.environ['zope_i18n_compile_mo_files'] = 'True'
os.environ['zope_i18n_allowed_languages'] = 'de,en'

(You might replace 'de,en' with the languages you need :)

Additionally you need to depend on the package 'python-gettext' which contains 
the compiler.

Sadly this is only documented in the source code of zope.i18n.compile and and
