How to translate the sign in button ?

on 2/4/15, 6:58 AM 1,277 views


I am a French user of Odoo and I understood how the translation works for the website but the sign in button is not translatable.

I can access files on the server. Can anybody tell me how I can translate this button, hardcoding ?

Thanks in advance,


Can you elaborate which sign in which button?

Hello, In Odoo v8, the sign in button is accessible through the website to help users access to the ERP. I am willing to translate the "sign in" button which you can't translate like other menu buttons. Best regards, José

You are right, the log in button text is in odoo/addons/web/views/webclient_templates.xml.

I was asking the question not to use a find. I used it anyway : a command like :

sudo find /opt/odoo -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep "Sign in"

gave me the file /addons/website/views/website_templates.xml

Which I edited to translate the sign in button.

In fact, I don't know if the log in button is used for english version or other languages and the sign in button for french version for example.

Anyway, everything's fine, button translated !

Hello again, I have thought about it again, it might be that the file Ivan was talking about is for logging into the system whereas the file I was searching for was for the website.

Sorry, I thought you are referring to a sign. Do you mean the "Log In" button in the login page? If so, you can try to change the text in odoo/addons/web/views/webclient_templates.xml (search for oe_login_button) and change the text there. You can implement this as XML template inheritance.
