phoenix_title wx.TranslationsLoader

Abstraction of translations discovery and loading.

This interface makes it possible to override wxWidgets’ default catalogs loading mechanism and load MO files from locations other than the filesystem (e.g. embed them in executable).

Implementations must implement the LoadCatalog method.

New in version 2.9.1.

  • lang (string) – Language to look for. This is “canonical name” (see wx.Locale.GetCanonicalName ), i.e. ISO 639 code, possibly combined with country code or additional modifiers (e.g. “fr”, “en_GB” or “ca@valencia”).
