The above is one approach I ported to zope.i18n from Plone's PlacelessTranslationService. I think it's only documented in Plone-level documentation. You can also integrate the compilation into your build process and use the gettext tools to do this: msgfmt --no-hash -o folder/locales/en/LC_MESSAGES/domain.mo folder/locales/en/LC_MESSAGES/domain.po The --no-hash isn't required, but makes the files a bit smaller by removing some data structures not used by Python's gettext implementation. It also makes sure the files are identical to those compiled with python-gettext.
