I use a French version. The quotation page is translated, but when I print the quotation, I get a pdf document where titles are in English...

How can I modify the template?

Did you realy set the language of the partner to french?

The language of the odoo website / input mask / form depends on the odoo user language settings.

The language of the pdf reports depends on the recipient language settings.



>modify the template

The kind (rml, webkit, qweb) of the reports depends on your openerp / odoo version.

If use openerp 7 without webkit module, look at <openerp sever path>/openobject-addons/purchase/report/request_quotation.rml  you could change setLang(order.partner_id.lang)  to setLang("fr") with a text editor  >> NOT recommended<<

You translate all from backend: Settings > Application Terms, Translated Terms.

Work a litte bit with filters...



Under V7 I do see Settings>Translations>Application Terms... but not on V8 and I do not find a dedicated module.

You must activate the "Technical Features" for the Admin user, then logout/login

hello, Many thanks for your help. I managed to activate Technical Features and I am able to see Application terms. I tried to synchronise... but nothing changed on the generated PDF.
