Website_sale (user cart) translation problem (reload i18n translation)

on 10/9/14, 10:13 AM 1,431 views


I found no posibility to translate "My cart" string in the TOP menu (in website_sale module, this point is not editable).
So I put my translation in the openerp/addons/website_sale/i18n folder and it works.
Problem is, I wish to modify the translation string and reload the translation. This is not works.

Odoo translated the string as I wish but the Website_sale module permanently load the string 

msgid "My cart"
msgstr "XYZ"

from my *.po file and permanently saved them somewhere. I do not know where.
It does not account for changes to the file any more.

Are there some temp files? Or  hold odoo the init translation in the database?
How I can reset the translation and persuade odoo to reload my *.po files for this module?

Ok, I found in backend translation strings.

You should be more precise, others want to know to. In example: https://www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/how-to-translate-my-cart-53847
