Rename specific items

I would like to rename specific items in the Human Resources module. For example I would like to rename Department into Sector. Is this possible in any way? Can I access translation files?

Yes, you can do it through the Translations: activate the "Developer Mode" (in the "About OpenERP" dialog box), and use the "Technical Translation" option from the developer mode drop-down box.

If you're using the English base language, it's a little trickier, but it's possible to generate the translations terms for it also, and then use the Technical Translation feature.

See more on this on this other question.

Thanks. This Developer Mode opens a whole new world.
