All translation files are placed in the folder i18n of your module.

the best method to make translation:

1- install your module

2- go to Settings>>Export translation

3- select Language , File Format (.po) , Modules To Export(select your module)


OpenERP generate a file (.po) for example if you choose Language English the file= en_US.po.

5- Place this file in i18n folder of your module .

6-Edit your translation.

you can export multiple files in different languages ​​Selected.

finally here is a good editor to file .po Poedit.ou can use it.
