NavigationToolbar internationalization

Hi, list
   I want to transtate NavagationToolbar tooltips in Russian and Ukrainian. Now I can do this
only with creating custom toolbar (via subclassing) in code. Is there another way to do this?
Maybe, there is any plans to add i18n support to some parts of matplotlib?

Thanks,
  Alexander Bruy

matplotlib currently has no i18n support. It would be a nice feature to have, it would just take someone with the motivation to do it to provide a patch. Python has gettext support in the standard library, so it should be reasonably straightforward: just the usual busywork of finding translatable strings and marking them. I think it's fair to say that internationalizing the GUI messages would be reasonably easy, internationalizing docstrings would be significant work, and internationalizing the API very close to impossible. I assume you're only talking about the first here.

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks Mike,
   you are right, I'm talking only about internationalizing the GUI messages.
In my opinion this make matplotlib more friendly to average users and
in some cases made programmers life easier.
