Generate Translation file

on 10/24/14, 5:23 AM 1,290 views

Hello world,

I don't know why but since Odoo 8 I can't generate the .pot file to translate the module I develop. When I try to generate them, I select lang English, PO format and my module (same goes with official ones) and then the action goes on indefinitely.

I tried to test it on runbot, there is no problem there the file is generated in one second, so I think the a problem come from my dev platform. I am on Debian7, do you have any idea about what can cause this kind of problem so I can check it? Maybe missing python dependencies I don't know.



Have you tried exporting the translation from the server command line?

Damn it I forgot it was possible. Unfortunately it doesn't solve the case: /path/to/odoo/odoo.py -c /path/to/config -d odoo_base --logfile=False --i18n-export=/path/to/file/account_wallet.pot Log ... openerp: writing translation file for new language to /path/to/file/account_wallet.pot ... But in the end the file generated is empty. I also tried with -l en_US, without result.
