The date actually appears in this format : "month/day/year", and i'd like it to appear in the format "day/month/year". How is it possible ? Thanks

But how to change date format for a particular field?

In Settings/Translations/Languages, you can change the date format for the language you use.

But you have to give technical features access to your admin user to see this menu.

This allows you to input the date in the chosen format. Upon saving , the display reverts to mm/dd/yyyy format. I tried this in HR. i do not know about the other modules. The field i tried was DOB.

The given procedure is working for me, even when I am using english as a language and the users have Dutch. I can change the format from mm/dd/yyyy to dd-mm-yyyy and they will see the date correctly.

My admin and current user uses the French language and i must the English (which i think is the system language) date format language to see it applied in my invoices.

I was also stuck with this. Changing the date format in the Settings/Translations/Languages seemed to have no effect (I even changed both the en_US and en_UK settings). Then I realised I hadn't changed the language setting in my own user preferences (top right hand corner -- User/Preferences/Lanuage). Select the language which you have changed the date format for and save.

This may not be the source of your problem but it may help someone else.

in OpenERP backend:

settings -> translations -> languages -> choose your language to edit -> edit -> Date Format field

This allows you to input the date in the chosen format. Upon saving , the display reverts to mm/dd/yyyy format. I tried this in HR. i do not know about the other modules. The field i tried was DOB.

You need to activate the developer mode, otherwise you won't see the extended menu.
