Export and Import translation

on 4/7/15, 8:12 AM 2,860 views

Hello, I have Odoo 8 and I want to export translation to import it in another database. I create the translated terms in Settings -> Translations -> Terms of the application -> Translated terms.

Then I go to Settings -> Translations -> Import/Export and then Export the language I want.

Then, in the new database, I go to Settings -> Translations -> Import/Export and Import the file what I have created. In the name of the Translation I put "Spanish (AR) / Español (AR)" and in the code "es_AR". I import the file and then go to "Synchronize terms" but the translation not works, the therms are not translated.

What is my mistake? Thanks!

 for export translations from "database_a":

./odoo.py  --language=es_AR  --i18n-export=/tmp/es_AR.po -d database_a

above command will export translations for all installed modules in "database_a" to the /tmp/es_AR.po file, then for import the exported terms in "database_b", run following two commands:

./odoo.py  --load-language=es_AR  --stop-after-init  -d database_b

./odoo.py  --language=es_AR --i18n-import=/tmp/es_AR.po  --i18n-overwrite  -d database_b

It is not any way to export translations from the UI?

Of course it's possible

you've exported it correctly from UI I think, most probably you've problem with import

you can simply open the exported file and you'll see if it contains translations, it's easy to verify
