How to make OpenERP a single language?

Recently we have translated most of the OpenERP (addons, web and base) in Macedonian (currently in quality check stage). What I'm trying to do is to make a database that has only one language - Macedonian, but the language is not in the list in the database manager.

Creating the database initially in English, installing Macedonian and then disabling English creates additional problems already described here.

So my question is: How to create a database in a language that is not in the list in the database manager?

Did you translated on launchpad or locally?

We translated them locally and then uploaded on Launchpad. 85%(and change) of OpenERP Addons, almost 69% of OpenERP Server and 98% of OpenERP Web. As I said earlier, different modules are given to professionals(in their branch) for quality checks.

Adding the following line:

'mk_MK': u'Macedonian / македонски',





does the job for testing purposes.
