I know how to use .po files to translate field labels and messages.

However I can not find how to define translations for field.Select options.

Could somone provide an example?

I could help you to develop anything and solve complex problems based on technologies, integrations and tricky stuffs mostly in Python with OpenERP/Odoo, Zato, Django and many others frameworks programming languages and technologies.

I offers consulting services to anyone with an unanswered questions or needs for customizations. Think about it, maybe it's better to have an expert to solve your issues and projects than having a full-time employee trying to understand what to do and how

You could do it like this where type is a selection field, you need to provide the translation for every value option of the selection field:

#. module: fetchmail

#: selection:fetchmail.server,type:0

msgid "Local Server"

msgstr "Servidor Local"
