How to get openerp.website.translatable true????

Hello all,

In the file /static/src/js/website.translator.js, we have the code :

if (!openerp.website.translatable) {

    // Temporary hack until the editor bar is moved to the web client




For one of my website, openerp.website.translatable is FALSE. Where is taken this value? How to change it to TRUE?



Ok, I now know that this value is taken here :

    <template id="website_lapagept.website_layout_pt" name="Main layout - PT">&lt;!DOCTYPE html&gt;

        <html t-att-lang="lang and lang.replace('_', '-')"

            t-att-data-website-id="website.id if editable and website else None"

            t-att-data-editable="'1' if editable else None"

            t-att-data-translatable="'1' if translatable else None"


But now, where does this new « translatable » take his value????

In the file : odoo-8.0-20150920/openerp/addons/website/models/ir_ui_view.py

This is where the real value of translatable is given.


def render(self, cr, uid, id_or_xml_id, values=None, engine='ir.qweb', context=None):

if request and getattr(request, 'website_enabled', False):


if isinstance(id_or_xml_id, list):

id_or_xml_id = id_or_xml_id[0]

if not context:

context = {}

company = self.pool['res.company'].browse(cr, SUPERUSER_ID, request.website.company_id.id, context=context)

qcontext = dict(






user_id=self.pool.get("res.users").browse(cr, uid, uid),

translatable=context.get('lang') != request.website.default_lang_code,


menu_data=self.pool['ir.ui.menu'].load_menus_root(cr, uid, context=context) if request.website.is_user() else None,
