So, I have a PDF report that is available in several languages. How can I enable the user to select a specific language of the report in the "Print" button?

Hi Rui,

The best thing that you can do is the same behaviour as with a quotation / sale order. The language of the report there is based on the language from the customer filled in on the quotation. When you create a many2one to the res.partner you know for which customer the report is. Thanks to this many2one you would know the language from the partner and from there on you can translate the report. Have a look at the default quotation / sale order report and handling languages:

<template id="report_saleorder">
<t t-call="report.html_container">
<t t-foreach="docs" t-as="doc">
<t t-call="sale.report_saleorder_document" t-lang="doc.partner_id.lang"/>
</t>   </t>

This bit of the code will get the language from the partner and will translate the report to the correct language. Do note: in order for this to work you also need to have translations in your .po files ofcourse!


Unfortunatelly that didn't work. When I retrieve the report it raises an exception: QWebException: 'NoneType' object has no attribute '_all_columns' I don't know if it's relevant but the report is on the product.product model.
