django-hvad 0.3

A translations framework for django integrated automatically in the normal ORM. Removes the pain of having to think about translations in a django project.

Latest Version: 1.8.0

This project is yet another attempt at making model translations suck less in Django.

Documentation for django-hvad can be found at

This project provides the same functionality as django-nani, but it as opposed to django-nani, this project does not affect the default queries, which means that everything will continue to work as it was before.

You have to activate the translated fields, by calling a specific method on the manager.


django-hvad is still in beta, please use it with caution and report any bug(s) you might encounter.

Returns all objects as translated instances, but only the ones that are translated into the currect language. You can also specify which language to get, using e.g.



  • Simple API
  • Predictable
  • Reliable
  • Fast (few and simple queries)
  • High level (no custom SQL Compiler or other scary things)
