I recently installed Odoo on a local machine. I want it to be in French thus I loaded a translation. The problem I have is while most of the ERP is in French some part of Odoo are still displayed in English. (These are some small sentences like: "send a note", "Meetings calendar", "create an event", ...

How can I get rid of these English parts and replace everything in French?

You have some options:

  1. Make your own translations, going to Settings/Translations/Application Terms/Translated Terms, change translated value for your own words.
  2. Generate fr_FR.po file going to Settings/Translations/Import Export/Export Translation and export po files for modules you want to change; then make translation on that files and Import back (or put them on the module i10n source files and update the module).
  3. Get involved in a translation proyect on Odoo community. https://github.com/odoo/odoo/wiki/GitHub-Transition, https://launchpad.net/openobject.

hope this help you. Greetings.

Some people call me a karma whore, I only ask for 10 points if you like my answer and 15 if I happen to get it correct.

One of the problems is that the French version is only 50% completed for verion 8 of Odoo.

You can view the progress and help translate with this link.
