I have installed openerp on my centos linux. I saw two copies of the application in




I tried to translate the .po files in both directories, but nothing changed! I also restarted the service by

sudo service openerp restart

but still not getting the translations!

What should I do?

You have to add a language in the user interface at:

Settings -->Translation --> Load a Translation

You can edit the terms at:

Settings -->Translation --> Application Terms --> Translated Terms

If you can't see that option, you probably need to turn on technical features for your account.

Thanks for the answer, but I have to restart the openerp service too.

I exported all the translations and then imported the changed file, after that, I restarted the server to see the items changed.
