Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
Is it possible to have the interface display everything in two languages simultaneously? That would be very useful in multi language companies (English/Chinese for example).
If I need to explain how something works in OpenERP to a Chinese colleague and he/she uses the Chinese interface I might have trouble explaining.
Example: if you want to log out the button would say:
- log out/Abmelden (English/German) or
- log out/åºå» (English/Chinese)
If it is not possible to actually load two parallel languages I guess a workaround could be to take a language pack and make a 'translation' yourself which than just contains two languages in one pack (if you know what I mean).
Any ideas about this?
As you mentioned, it's possible to create your own "translation" where the translated text strings include the messages in both languages.
That could be automated by a program that merges merging the translation string from two file into one, it shouldn't even be that complicated.
This is my answer if you really want to do it - but why would you want to do that?
You can install as many languages you like and each User can select the which language he prefers, in
User -> Preferences -> Language.
This change is immediate - you don't have to logout and re-login, so it's you swap between languages the whole time if you like.
