Right. The Zope 3 machinery doesn't do that. Use msgfmt from the gettext
utilities to compile catalogs.
You're also using PTS's non-standard directory layout. The standard
gettext layout is somedir/LC_MESSAGES/<lang>/<domain>.mo. PTS supports
this as well but Plone continues not to go standard here and set a bad
Seems awefully academic to me but if that's the standard, let's do it.

HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE isn't a variable. It's an HTTP header
(Accept-Language) that you really shouldn't modify. The request should
be treated as read-only.
To test languages, either write your own IUserPreferredLanguages adapter
that returns the language you want or simply configure your browser to
send a different Accept-Language header. In Firefox, you can simply do
this by entering "about:config" in the URL bar and changing the setting
of the intl.accept_languages variable (e.g. to "se, en").

You simply didn't read Five/doc/i18n.txt
(http://codespeak.net/z3/five/i18n.html). Googling "five i18n" gives you
that as a first hit. "RTFM" is all I can say here.
Don't RTFM me! I've read that page and unless you have a PhD in
physics and indept experience of Zope 3 is really doesn't make a lot
of sense. Plus, I've got your cookbook at home :)
So, should I use PTS or not??
"The default behaviour for choosing languages in Five is the one of
Zope 3: analyze the Accept-Language HTTP header and nothing more."
This is not good enough. When I send out email alerts to people in my
app, that's a wget script that kicks if off, not a Mozilla browser.
Besides, what if an Englishman is using a Swedish
internetcafe-computer when on holiday; in that case I want to allow
him to manually configure his user profile on my site.
I have no idea what this does or what I'm supposed to do with:
Please tell me there's a function or something that works like this::
uid = self._getLoggedinUID()
wants_lang = self._getUserPreference(uid, default='en')
return _("I wish it was easier")
def manage_setUserPreference(self, uid, lang):
if lang in getAvailableLanguages():
Where _getUserPreference() and _setUserPreference() is something I'm
expected to write for my app.
