Message changes not reflected in PDF reports

I have 2 examples of message changes not appearing in PDF reports.

  1. When I change the name of a payment term, and the "description on invoice" field, the changes do not appear on the invoice.
  2. Overdue Payments Message. Again, I have changed this, but the old text keeps appearing on the Overdue Payments letter.

Is this some sort of caching issue. I was not aware of a caching mechanism in OpenERP. If not, any other ideas, or is this a bug?

Are you making these changes via RML edits or via the UI (Technical Translation) ?

Solved. It was an issue with translations. I did not realise that OpenERP stored different versions of messages for each language you are using. I am using French and English, I use the English as a user interface language, but generated invoices for French customers, so I was editing the english version not realising that the forms took the data from the french version, if a customer was tagged as French.
