This snippet holds your Django project from automatically changing language of the page to the best fitting one by discovering the client browser language.

I personally needed to show the page to the user for the first time in the default language (English), although there were some translations. User can still change the language (via session cookies).

Insert this middleware BEFORE the Django's django.middleware.locale.LocaleMiddleware in settings.

class NoAutoLocaleMiddleware(object):
    def process_request(self,request):
        request.META['HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE'] = ''
