Hello Taras, I see that the Ukrainian translations are far from being completed. I suggest you revert your XML changes and use Odoo built-in translations support and simply translate the correct files.

To enable Odoo built-in translations support, you will require Administration permissions in your Odoo server to load the Ukrainian translation ("Settings > Translations > Load a Translation").

Every Odoo module has a directory with translations, you may try editing the `uk.po` for the "Point of Sale" module, in your local installation, and load the new translated terms by reinstalling the module. Look for the following file in your local installation: 

It is very important to use an UTF-8 aware editor so you don't run into encoding problems later. 

After the translation has been loaded, Odoo users have the option to set their preferred language by setting it at their Preferences (Username > Preferences: Language).

As in any open source project, contributions are always welcomed. Odoo now uses the Transifex platform to manage translations, you only require to subscribe there in order to push contributions.

Dear Taras,

The error says your accented characters cannot be encoded by xml.

You must not edit the XML, rather use your admin credentials to change the trnslations.

Well i translate exporting the .po file from the module and use the PoEdit software, for me that's the best way

Use import-export translations file/


Install ODoo to *nix system - its work stable.
