Hello everyone,

I've imported few times a Spanish translation of "stock" module (with code es_ES) but some terms are still not translated and I don't know how to find the solution to this... How can I check why is this not working?

Thanks in advice!

I'm having the same issue with the purchase addon in Turkish. Main menu "Purchases" remains English. Importing translation openerp/addons/base/i18n/<your language>.po and logout/login fixes the problem. I just don't understand why it is loading other translations but this menu item.

Yes, I checked that. What do you mean by upgrading module? Thanks for your answers.

Here you can check which terms ain't translated. Odoo updates translations from launchpad in couple of days.

Well, those are the official translations. But I mean that the translation is done in the .po file, but when importing it, some terms are still in english...

Did you check "Overwrite Existing Terms"? Also sometimes you have to simply upgrade module.
