flufl.i18n - A high level API for internationalization

This package provides a high level, convenient API for managing
internationalization translation contexts in Python application. There is a
simple API for single-context applications, such as command line scripts which
only need to translate into one language during the entire course of their
execution. There is a more flexible, but still convenient API for
multi-context applications, such as servers, which may need to switch language
contexts for different tasks.


``flufl.i18n`` requires Python 2.6.5 or newer, and is compatible with Python 3
when used with ``2to3``.


A `simple guide`_ to using the library is available within this package, in
the form of doctests. The manual is also available online in the Cheeseshop
