In OpenERP v7.0, I need to get the Language of the Current User. I did try to get session info from web/controllers/main.py In Class Home, i added this line:

 lang = self.get_lang(req)

get_lang is :

    def get_lang(self, req):
    ''' get the context lang, with direction properties
    #   raise osv.except_osv('',str(req.session.get_context().get('lang', 'en_US')))
    current_lang = req.session._uid and req.session.get_context().get('lang', 'en_US') or 'en_US'
    #        pdb.set_trace()

    default = {
        'code': current_lang,
        'direction': 'ltr', 

    if not req.session._uid:
        return default
    context = req.session.get_context()    
    Model = req.session.model
    langobj = Model('res.lang').search([('code', '=', current_lang),], 0, False, False, context)
    lang = Model('res.lang').read(langobj[0], ['code', 'direction'], context) if langobj else None
    if not lang:
        return default

    return dict(lang)


req.session,_uid is always False

Isn't the current user language set on the res_users/partner model?
