Hello everybody,

I want to change the language of picking in report, actually it's printed in english and i want to print it in french. Partner on picking have french language in his form, and user have french as language too. I see there is a setLang() in the rml file but it does nothing; when I change it nothing happens and it's still in english, i try to force it (setLang('fr_FR') ) and it does nothing too.

What I miss for change report's language?

Thanks for your help.

English is "hardwired" in these reports, so you'll have to change it in the code. In Odoo 8 you can go in


Settings/User Interface/Views and search for external (this way you can edit the code in header and footer to your language)


Settings/Reports/Reports and search for invoice, click Search associated QWeb views (this way you can edit the code in main body of your Invoice)


Settings/Reports/Reports and search for sale.order, click Search associated QWeb views (edits main part in quotations)
