How to get the language of the current logged user in a qweb report ( odoo 8 )

I created a qweb report and it worked successfully. When I came to translate it I added this code:

<template id="my_report_id">
    <t t-call="report.html_container">
        <t t-foreach="doc_ids" t-as="doc_id">
        <t t-raw="translate_doc(doc_id, doc_model, 'lang' , 'my_module.my_report_id_document')"/>

When I tried to run it I got the following error 

QWebException: ""'my model name' object has no attribute 'lang'" while evaluating
'doc.lang'" while evaluating
"translate_doc(doc_id, doc_model, 'lang' , 'my_module.my_report_id_document')"

I changed it to several choices , for example:



instance.session.user_context.lang, as per this link 

with no success. 

The module I'm working on I created it from scratch and it does not depend on any other module. How to resolve this issue.

instance.session.user_context.lang is in webclient (javascript) 

You want probably use  "request.lang"

But the method translate_doc take a field to specify the lang, not a lang directly...

In your case you should browse yourself in the correct lang the doc (with request.lang) and set translatable to True in the context

That should works, here the code in odoo...

if ctx.get('translatable') is True:
    qcontext['o'] = doc
    # Reach the lang we want to translate the doc into
    ctx['lang'] = eval('doc.%s' % lang_field, {'doc': doc})
    qcontext['o'] = self.pool[model].browse(cr, uid, doc_id, context=ctx)
