How do I overrule field names in a core module like fleet?

Hi,

I would like to use the fleet module for an aircraft maintenance and restoration company. As a lot of fields in the fleet module are of no meaning for aircraft, I would like to give them an other purpose

Some labels I would like to alter :

vehicle -> aircraft odometer -> flying hours license plate -> matriculation driver -> pilot or owner Chassis Number -> Serial Number

I can alter them in the core module, but they'll be lost as soon as I upgrade the module

Do I have to create a new module? And how do I overrule the labels? Does there exist something like translation inheritance in openerp?

Can somebody help me out on this?

Just change the translation names, they won't be overwritten with module upgrades.

If you're using the English language, see in this question how to do it.
