Hello. I have an instance of Odoo 8 with English and Spanish MX as installed languajes. Most of screens and documents appear correctly translated to Spanish and, when is needed, I am able to modify the Translated Terms base and get the new translation with no problem.

However, I am facing a situation with the 'Request for Quotation' report, where all static text remains as English text with no translation. I have reviewed and even created new registers of Translated Terms with no successs. By instance, 'Shipping address :' is traslated as 'Dirección de envío :' but appears as the original one.

Source                     Translation value     Translated field Language                             Type

Shipping address :   Dirección de envío :    website               Spanish(MX)/Español(MX)   View

One of my tests was changing a word on the source document and add the translated term to the base, resulting on a correct translation for that word or phrase.

If any of you have experimented this issue or have any idea, I will appreciate your comments.


I found that not all of source strings were created for all of the modules they appear in. I have to create new registers for strings, associated to other modules too.
