I would like to import a .po file to translate an addon (odoo v8). Here is the process that I follow: 

- I export the po file 

-I translate it on poedit 

-I import it 

-I disconnect from odoo 

-I delete my internet history

-And finally I connect again on my odoo instance but there is no translation...

What do I miss? Could someone help me? 

how you import it?

How can I put that po file in a module? 

Create the i18n folder and put it inside

Try to put that translated .po in a module and install it or update it. 

#Other tips:

Update this po elements at the beginning of the file:

Project-Id-Version: with your Odoo release version

POT-Creation-Date and PO-Revision-Date: with an updated date
