This tool is automatically called by pyside6-project so you don’t need to call it manually. Qt Creator will take care of this step as well while executing a project.

pyside6-lrelease is a command line tool wrapping lrelease. It produces .qm files out of .ts files. The .qm file format is a compact binary format that the localized application uses. It provides extremely fast lookup for translations (see Translating Applications).


To convert a .ts file of the Qt Linguist Example into its binary representation, run:

pyside6-lrelease example_de.ts -qm example_de.qm
