Django Internationalisation (i18n) Statistics

The Python web framework Django supports internationalistaion (i18n) for nearly 30 different languages already.

While reviewing the changesets flowing through the Django source repository, I often notice amendments to the internationalisation code and it got me thinking about how ‘complete’ the i18n status is for the languages that Django is attempting to support.

Enter a visually simple but very informative web site built using Google App Engine which polls the Django subversion repository periodically and compiles a table showing the percentage completion for each of the different languages.

I’m impressed that with nearly 30 different languages under their belt that the majority of them are reporting very solid percentage completion numbers, no wonder so many non-English speaking developers are using Django.
