I've been told the proper way to customize menu names is to use Translations, even if you only have the base English in your instance.
But how to use Translations to customize OpenERP's original English texts ?
yes you can do this ,like all other languages .
generate a file
en_US.po for your module and place it in i18n .change the terms you want to change.
then update your module .all original words should be changed. for example in module sale ..
#. module: sale #: code:addons/sale/sale.py:444 #, python-format msgid "Customer Invoices" msgstr "Customer Invoices" < ------- here your translation #. module: sale #: model:ir.actions.act_window,name:sale.open_board_sales #: model:ir.ui.menu,name:sale.menu_dashboard_sales #: model:process.process,name:sale.process_process_salesprocess0 #: view:res.partner:0 #: view:sale.order:0 #: view:sale.report:0 msgid "Sales" msgstr "Sales"< ------- here your translation #. module: sale #: help:sale.config.settings,module_sale_margin:0 msgid "This adds the 'Margin' on sales order.\n" " This gives the profitability by calculating the difference between the Unit Price and Cost Price.\n" " This installs the module sale_margin." msgstr "This adds the 'Margin' on sales order.\n" " This gives the profitability by calculating the difference between the Unit Price and Cost Price.\n" " This installs the module sale_margin." < ------- here your translation #. module: sale #: report:sale.order:0 #: field:sale.order.line,price_unit:0 msgid "Unit Price" msgstr "Unit Price" < ------- here your translation
Based on Borni's answer, I got to this recipe:
- Go to Settings Â» Translations Â» Application Terms Â» Synchronize Terms
- Select Language English and click Update
That's it. Now you will find the English strings in the Technical Translation screens and can customize the Translated values at will.
