How to have invoices in another language?

My Odoo is set in Spanish, as i'm working in Panama.

The problem is that when I go to print/PDF my invoice (or other documents), it comes out  in English. But when i created it in the software it's all in Spanish.

I put Spanish in all the settings but still..

Are you using odoo v8rc1?

So the on-screen text is fine. It's only the printed version of your documents? Please list specific modules/reports that fail. Thanks.

Exactly. It happens with all the modules I use (Sales , Accounting, Purchases...)

Is your client set to be spanish? The printed versions are set according to the client's language and not the user's

Hi Michael, I search how to configure "client"s feature but couldn't found it. I changed the language in the "account section" but I have still the problem. Can you guide me with this?

The language is set in the sales and purchase tab of the client. (I believe it has to be in the invoicing contact). Also, if you modify the original reports, you have to make sure the new terms appear in your translated terms.

THANKS Michael you are right, it worked! I just wonder if there is a way to change this settings for ALL the clients, or if I have to do it manually one-by-one...

An easy way would be to export the clients with the language field and then edit them through excel and then re-import them. That's what I usually do for mass modifications.

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

Sounds like you have this v8rc1 bug that has been reported to odoo in GitHub.

Thans for your answer, Actually I have this screen in Spanish, it is when I print it that comes out in English... I use the free browser version of Odoo.
