    def unlink(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):
        sale_orders = self.read(cr, uid, ids, ['state'], context=context)
        unlink_ids = []
        for s in sale_orders:
            if s['state'] in ['draft', 'cancel']:
                raise osv.except_osv(('Khong hop le'),('Ban phai xac nhan truoc khi huy bo'))

            return osv.osv.unlink(self, cr, uid, unlink_ids, context=context)
    def action_confirm(self, cr, uid, ids, context=None):
        self.write(cr, uid, ids,{'state': 'done', 'date_confirm': fields.date.context_today(self, cr, uid, context=context)})

Try to declare your string as unicode, for example :

('draft', 'Kiến nghị') becomes ('draft', u'Kiến nghị').

But I would recommend you to write your code in english, use _() i18n function and then translate your text with poedit. It's also much easier for other people who don't speak your language to support you on this forum.


More reading about encoding/decoding and unicode.
