Why can't I see changes made on the table ir_ui_menu (trying to change a menuitem)?

I'm only trying to change the name of a top menu option, so I'm trying to change a menuitem.

For this, I created a new module and I'm doing the following:

For changing menu option name "Sales" (crm):

<record model="ir.ui.menu" id="base.menu_base_partner">
    <field name="name">My New Menu Name for Sales</field>

For changing menu option name "Human Resources" (hr):

<record model="ir.ui.menu" id="hr.menu_hr_root">
    <field name="name">My New Menu Name for HR</field>

I check on the database and the changes are being made. Those menus have now the names I assigned to them.

However, I can't see them on the browser, although I restarted the OpenERP service. Even I created a new database and installed my module form zero, but still nothing.

Does anyone know why?

please check language translation files....

Try to Synchronize Terms for the actual Language under Settings --> Translations --> Application Terms

That was the problem. Thank you so much!
