Change Language in OpenERP in v7
If you want to use OpenERP in your local/nationalized language or any other language(other than English(default)), you can surely change Language into just few minutes. Just follow below few simple steps and OpenERP will be converted into your selected language.
Login your into OpenERP system with your username and password. Go to Settings → Translations → Click on Load a Translation.
By clicking that menu 1 pop up(wizard) will open up with list of all official languages. Select the language from the list in which you want to convert an OpenERP. Here I have selected French language. After selecting a language click on Load. It will take few seconds to load.
After completion of loading a language click on Settings → Translations → Languages(List of all the languages that have been loaded). Here we can see French language have been loaded successfully.
Now we just have to configure language(French) in User Preferences. Go to upper right side of user and click on Preferences.
By clicking Preferences a new window will open up and select your language(French) from list of languages(Here you will get all the list of languages which you have officially loaded) and save your data.
Congratulations! We have successfully translated OpenERP into Your Language(French).
There are lots of terms which have been already translated by official translation, but still there would be many terms, translation of which is yet not done. You can find them at Configuration (Settings) → Translations →Terms de I'application (Application Terms) →Terms traduits (Translated Terms) and filter records by “Non traduit (Untranslated)” and you will get all the list of Untranslated Terms. You can define your own translation terms in “Translation Value”.
