Error in "Finance" Tab on a fresh installed Odoo 9.0c.20151223 under Debian 8 Jessie (the same error under Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS).

I get the following error when i click on the "finance" tab.

With the Setup Manager, i can change the settings in finance.

The problem seems to only occur, when localization is set to non-English (e.g. German).

To fix the issue, you have to correct the following translation:

Bills & Refunds

Rechnungen & Stornorechnungen

change to

Rechnungen & Stornorechnungen

Thank you, that's it. :-)
