<p>Thanks for the snippet.</p> <p>A little typo: in Line 5 it must be 'max_length' instead of 'maxlength'</p>

<p>Although this snippet is rather old, it still works fine... :) If you want to use I18N, you should use this:</p> <pre>from django.utils import translation kwargs.setdefault('choices', [(k, translation.ugettext(v)) for k, v in settings.LANGUAGES]) </pre> <p>Also, 5 chars is not enough anymore, for example sr-latn has 7.</p>
