Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I want to add a translation to a module [l10n_cn] and I think that should be done using so called .po files (that seem to be stored in a folder called "i18n")
now, in my case there is no i18n folder and no .po files. I am completely in the dark how this is supposed to work, but from looking at other Modules I have the feeling these .po files can be generated automatically and you can use these aut generated templates to add your translated terms
- Is my feeling correct?
- if 'yes' ... how can that be done?
EDIT: the Module I want to add a translation to is l10n_cn which is the Chinese Chart of Accounts. This is part of the base Modules that are being shipped with the standard odoo Installation
You have two options here:
1)You can simply create the new folder in your module (i18n) and then create a new .po file (cn.po for example)
Add all the translations in it as you wish and then simply update the module.
2) Use the import/export function under settings > Translations. You can then first export the translations for a given module, make the translations in the file and finally import it under 'Import Translations'.
Note: Sadly .po files seem to be a hit and miss though, I've had numerous problems with them not working and loading and...
Best of luck
